Watershed #30 -- Green Bay Botanical Garden

The series titled “Watershed” – is a series with postings about the areas close to Gardens at Waters East, but not from my personal garden.  Gardens at Waters East is part of a large watershed that feeds Lake Michigan.  Lots of information on this “life giving” resource on a number of past “Watershed” posting.  Check them out.  A watershed photo is at the end of this posting.



The Green Bay Botanical Garden is a gem.  For a small town like Green Bay (population of about 200,000 in the city) this is a wonderful place to visit.  You would expect to see something this good in larger cities – like Chicago, Milwaukee, New York etc. etc. and there you do.  But this is such a special part of the city of Green Bay, and it is done very well.  Worth a visit.  I have posted only a few of the photos I took this past weekend just to give you an idea of the gardens – really very nice!  If you are in the area – do visit.







 Interesting stone structure.

STORM CLOUDS - - - at the GAWE


Had a storm blow through this afternoon - August 30, 2017.  It made for some interest and turbulent cloud formation, over Lake Michigan and over the gardens.  This is the Gardens at Waters East living a different view for this posting.

 The storm begins.
