Green Thumb Sunday!

September 2, 2007 by Jocelyn

My boyfriend and I took a trip to Enger Tower this past week for some pictures. The tower has a great view of the city, and some impressive shade gardens as well.

Here’s the view of the lift bridge from the top of the tower.

This is the most Coleus plants I’ve ever seen in one place at a time!

Their Impatiens were beautiful! I love the coral colored ones. It was interesting because you could see that the ones who were in shade all day were much thicker than the ones that got some sun during the day. The difference was incredible.

    Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments! These gardens really are impressive, and I’m afraid my camera won’t do them justice.
