Powell Gardens 2009

Post by Roanoker »

I already posted pictures taken at Powell Gardens, when we visited in 2019. These pictures come from an earlier visit, ten years before. I used a different camera, too.

Here we go…

Trees and flowers. It is what we would expect.
Image

Closer in on those gorgeous flowers.
Image

My son traverses an obvious path.
Image

The entrance.
Image

Yellow makes for happy flowers.
Image

Inside the Visitor Center.
Image

Down the main hall.
Image

Indoor plant.
Image

Big flower. Looks like a plate.
Image

A standout.
Image

Bee… Careful!
Image

Orange colors mix nicely in this flower.

It's a variety of hardy hibiscus. I have one like this in my yard, except the flowers are a dark red instead pink.

You should post a picture of your flower. I'd love to see it.

Let me start off by admitting that I’m an idiot. When I saw “2009” in my pictures folder, I assumed it referred to the year 2009. It didn’t. It meant the year 2020, Month 9 (September, 2020.) I finally noticed the dates on the pictures. They indeed referred to nearly a year and a half AFTER the 2019 pictures. NOT ten years earlier. Sorry about that.

Flat beauty,
Image

Droopy niceties.
Image

Creepy statue but nice plants and flowers.
Image

The varieties are amazing.
Image

Lovely colors and shapes.
Image

Yellow screams.
Image

Multiple buildings on site.
Image

I liked this big branch and its angle.
Image

To eat or not to eat. That is the question.
Image

Many kinds.
Image

Pink lips.
Image

Nice orange thing.

Again, it is September, 2020.

This flower seems prevalent.
Image

The lake here is nice.
Image

The flower he found must have been worthy.
Image

Cool bridge.
Image

Airborne.
Image

Yet another bridge. A small one.
Image

Lake and field.
Image

My turn!
Image

No shortage of bridges here. Who would think to paint the interior blue?
Image

Flowers and fences. Love it.
Image

Now a bridge and its reflection.
Image

Really nice yellows.
