Rock Garden


The rock garden in Elizabeth Park is a peaceful, contemplative plot behind the perennial garden and adjacent to the annual garden.  Most of the plants are foliage plants that show off a variety of greens.

The theme for July for City Daily Photo bloggers is The Color Green.

Brattcat's comment above is as poetic as the captions on her posts. Nice choice for the theme.

It's a gorgeous garden! Jack, is that a bridge in the background (left) or is is an amazing trunk covered with some kind of hanging plant?

I've came back to this picture no less than 5 times, had to show my husband it too. There is something about it that just feels very peaceful. I'd like to create something like that in my yard, when I get a yard;-)
