Community Gardens revisited

We were back in Monticello, IA last month and I had to stop at their community garden to see how things had changed.  There were new blooms and everything was so much more filled out from when we were there in July.  I took some pictures of different areas of the garden.

The Wishing Well ~

The shaded Hosta bed ~

'M' for Monticello planted in red Salvia ~

See how much the antique horse trough has filled out since my previous post about it ~

Anemone ~

This was the only Daylily that was in bloom.  I was such a rich buttery yellow color ~

Thank you to Jean again, for hosting Bloomin' Tuesday.  Click on the link on her name for more beautiful garden posts.

  8. This is an amazing community garden - I wish we had one here! One of my neighbors wanted to start one but the local govt did not see the benefit. So very short-sighted!
