Colorful Summer Gardens

I’m so proud to live in a city whose public gardens management takes pride in the beauty and pleasure it brings to all those who visit, near and far. I am referring to Point Defiance Park, located on a point of land overlooking the waters of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington. One of the park’s more popular attractions is its variety of gardens. Besides its outstanding Rose Garden and large Dahlia Test Garden, a major highlight during the summer season is its colorful Border Floral Garden. It often forms the backdrop for private, summer weddings. Each summer the garden comes alive with colorful Zinnias, Nicotiana, Lilies, Blue Salvia, Snapdragons, to mention a few. Here’s a few photos I snapped to give one an idea of what to expect when visiting the garden.
