Beauty in Unexpected Places

You might think that these beautiful flowers are at a park or private garden, but surprise, surprise....

They are at the local ShopRite Plaza.  New landscapers did it all over a couple of years ago and it is such a treat to see. Right now the Meadow Sage in two shades of purple and bright red Knock Out roses are blooming in their full glory.  The brilliant Stella Doro daylilies are just starting to show some color and later in the summer the purple cone flowers will be the stars. These pictures only show a small portion of the gardens.

They do an excellent job of keeping flowers maintained with dead heading and cutting back in the fall. I hope that other shoppers get as much pleasure from it as I do. And, yes, I did tell the manager of ShopRite.

Hi, Norma. Now if other shopping areas would follow that example! Really enjoyed your Brown planet quilt and I especially liked the Totem exhibition. What creativity!
