Birthday at the Bicentennial Garden

The garden we visited on Sunday was this one.   There were quite a few sculptures, a man made stream with a waterfall, and lots of lovely flowers and plants.

this pretty grass

The rock garden provided inspiration for landscaping around our new porch.  I will share a post about that in the future.

pretty purples
lots of butterflies
In addition to the main garden, a short walk across the street takes you to the Bog garden.

can anyone ID this for me?

Cypress knees
possibly button bush?

A funny thing is the garden just happened to be the site of Pokemon Go that day.  There was a large crowd around one of the bridges, but otherwise it was a peaceful place to visit.

What a relaxing way to spend your special day. I will have to keep the garden in mind for a future visit.

It was lovely, M & M. The pokemon was funny, though!
