Bench in Sunken Garden


The Sunken Garden changes its appearance with the changing seasons.  It is a real visual treat, and can be visited year round in the Margery McNeely Conservatory in Como Park in St. Paul

  1. A lot of that flora looks like what we grow here in Florida. I've never visited this place but I have relation that has. It sounds wonderful!

    Re the pelicans: When we moved to south Florida about 26 years ago, the brown pelican was almost extinct due to the use of DDT. DDT had just been banned as I recall and between then and now the brown pelican has made a wonderful revival and they can be found on all of our coasts in quantity. They're fun to watch.

  2. Wow, looks at all that color. Did you notice Todd walking in front of the woman on my post today? I didn't notice it until I uploaded it.

  5. What a treat that must be! The colors are wonderful!

    To add a necessary footnote to the croissant discussion: Paris is so intoxicating to me that everything tastes like the "best," even if it's a runner up to a croissant baked in St. Paul.
