You found some beauties! I would love to take a walk on that path. Is it a place you go often?

Lynne said...

Sandy- this park is the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary about five miles from my home. It was founded by the Minneaplos Park Board in 1907 and represents plantings of Minnesota's major habitats- deciuous forest, upland prairie and wetland. Eloise Butler, a schoolteacher, feared the wildness of Minnesota would fall to development and worked tirelessly to save a part of it. She tended the Wildflower Garden her whole life. Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden is the oldest wildflower garden in the United States. We celebrated its 100th birthday this year. I love this park.

Oh Lynne, I want to go to this place so badly. I cut an article out of a magazine last winter and showed it to my brother in St. Paul, asking if he knows where this place is and could he take me there if I come up to visit him. Your pictures are so beautiful. I'd better get my plans finalized!

Lynne said...

Ruthie- Let me know when you're coming! I'd love to meet you there!

Deb said...

I spent twenty odd years of my life growing up near there, and never once did I visit the place! The things I missed!

NatureWoman said...

Ohhh, very nice Lynne! Looks like a nice place to visit! (I miss your words!)

I have no response to your wordless post.

Mary said...

"Let Nature be Your Teacher." More words are not necessary, Lynne. Perfect. But I, too, like your words :o)

Teach me! Teach me!

The triliums are beautiful! Those are bluebells, right?

What's the yellow flower?

nina said...

Celandine poppies? You're looking so lush and green--(like we were a month ago!)
It looks so cool and inviting--is it? We're 6.4 inches below normal rainfall and everything is getting crispy and crunchy.
Your area looks so friendly.

greg said...

It looks simply beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing, I'm going to have to get over there sometime soon!

Larry said...

Looks like a nice peaceful place for a walk.-This is one case where I wouldn't mind if the teacher kept me after class.

Words couldn't have said it better. Beautiful.
