I’ll be celebrating National Public Gardens Day, May 11 this year, with a stroll over the Bridge of Flowers. What will you do?

  • I’ve always thought whenever you’ve shown this Bridge of Flowers that it’s so lovely to have a space like this in your community that everyone can enjoy. I didn’t realize tomorrow was National Public Gardens Day–I plan to clean house, since it will be my first full day at home in awhile:) But Saturday I’m helping plant our Master Gardeners’ Idea Garden, which is open to the public all season long, so I guess I’ll just be celebrating a day late!

    Rose – We are all fortunate if we can have some kind of public garden in our community.

  • I especially love the pink flowers below. They are gorgeous. Thanks for linking this week, see you for more gardening next week! SMiles.

  • I love the Chicago Botanic Garden. I’d go every day if I could. They also have excellent adult ed programs.

    blogger- I’m a sucker for pink flowers.
    Jason – The Bridge of Flowers does cooperate with the local elementary school and we have Master Gardeners on duty from time to time during the summer.
