Seasonal Contrast #27 - Middle Walk

Seasonal Contrast in the - Gardens at Waters East

Postings in this ongoing series will show the same garden “area” and “objects” at two or more different times / seasons of the year.  The contrast will offer the viewer an appreciation of the beauty found in the same spot but in different months.  Some of the photos have never been seen before, others were collected from earlier postings in order to provide the needed contrast.  Each season has its own “feeling”, has its own  beauty.

Enjoy

Watershed #30 -- Green Bay Botanical Garden

The series titled “Watershed” – is a series with postings about the areas close to Gardens at Waters East, but not from my personal garden.  Gardens at Waters East is part of a large watershed that feeds Lake Michigan.  Lots of information on this “life giving” resource on a number of past “Watershed” posting.  Check them out.  A watershed photo is at the end of this posting.



The Green Bay Botanical Garden is a gem.  For a small town like Green Bay (population of about 200,000 in the city) this is a wonderful place to visit.  You would expect to see something this good in larger cities – like Chicago, Milwaukee, New York etc. etc. and there you do.  But this is such a special part of the city of Green Bay, and it is done very well.  Worth a visit.  I have posted only a few of the photos I took this past weekend just to give you an idea of the gardens – really very nice!  If you are in the area – do visit.







 Interesting stone structure.

Hope you enjoyed the short visit!
