Today's Flowers: Grace Garden
I am so glad I thought to walk past the tree line which blocks Grace Garden from view, in the summer, at the place I park when I have to work on site (normally I work from my home computer).
The garden is in Durham NC's Central Park which was established in 2001 and is a fairly small city park. I had taken some shots last fall and winter when I worked on site but the trees had dropped their leaves so I shot what I could see from my car. However, with the trees still full of summer leaves last week, I decided to walk into the park and get a better look.
I was totally surprised to find a delightful garden in the park. Looking online I found out that Grace Garden is a memorial to Grace Richardson, a Durham resident who was killed by a drunk driver. Although some of the flowers like the ones above, have gone to seed, there was still a lot in bloom. Next time I have to work in Durham in the spring and summer, I'll have to get some shots of the earlier garden blooms.
