These photos were taken this afternoon at the Gardens at Waters East. - - 5.2.16   Took a walk on StoneWater Beach this afternoon – and a walk around the garden – checking out the shore erosion from the Winter and what is in bloom here at the garden today.  Here is a sampling!

  1. Fascinating photos.The beach scenes are great to see,as that is something I don't see on the prairies.Of course I always enjoy the flowers.

  2. What lovely pictures, and I see that the bloom has advanced further in your garden than in mine.

      Your star magnolia is very beautiful.

    Have a nice day!
