A Public Garden---Part 1

 
 

Welcome to this secret garden
within the city. When I say
"secret" I mean that for most
it is unknown to them.


 

I'm going to let the pictures
speak fo themselves. I'll
tell you more at the end.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


Did you have fun? We had a blast
going through this beautiful 2 acre
garden. It is located in Kansas City,
Missouri, named after philanthorpists
Ewing and Muriel Kauffman and given
to the city for it's residents enjoyment.

The Kauffman's world travels inspired
this garden. In partnership with the
Kauffman foundation Powell Gardens
maintians this garden. The staff change
the flower beds 4 times a year with
each season. We saw the spring beds.

There are local and exotic botanicals,
including plant varities not found else-
where in the Midwest. There are stone
walls, fountains and the bronze statues
are by the sculptor Tom Collins.

More to come in the next installment of
" A Public Garden."

This may be my last post for a bit. But I
will pop in once next week. We are get-
ting ready for our "staycation" next week.
Lots planned for next week but need to
work on a few details.

I'll see you soon!
