The Cleveland Botanical Gardens - Part Two

After visiting the Glass House, we went out to wander through the ten acres of gardens.
Here are some photos...

Just outside is a pool filled with water lilies.




I did not know that Cana lilies can be grown as an aquatic plant.



A mass planting of cheerful zinnias



Passing through this gate, you begin your journey through a series of different gardens.



Petunias...


Impatiens...


Hydrangea...



Purple coneflowers...



The Japanese garden...





The Waterfall Garden...




One section is referred to as the Inspiration Gardens.  They provide ideas for outdoor landscaping.



Black-eyes Susans...


the Rose Garden...


We finished our tour in the Herb Garden.



There I ran into one of my former colleagues, a retired science teacher from the school where I taught.  She is a member of the Western Reserve Herb Society, and she volunteers one day each week to work in the herb garden.  It was good to see her and to have a chance to chat.

A visit to the Cleveland Botanical Gardens is a wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon!

      I miss your Aunt Jane very much.
      I don't like to display my email address publicly, but you should be able to get it from your Aunt Sandy. I would like to hear from you.
      Thanks for stopping by,
      Bill

    Beautiful photos. Have you considered adding a "like" button to your blog? That way you can know that some of us who are too lazy to leave a comment on every post have indeed stopped by.
