Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week is to take something from a photo she posts and use it as the topic of the participant’s post. Possible subjects for Week 1 Photo – Geometry, bushes, window, brick, curtain, green, tan, wall, building, dark red, tree.
On May 29, we visited Lincoln, Nebraska. One of the attractions in Lincoln is the Sunken Gardens. I love gardens so I had to see what that was! I used the following subjects from Cee’s Challenge: trees, dark red, tan, green, bricks, geometry, bush
In the winter of 1930-31, during the Great Depression, the city of Lincoln provided jobs for 200 family men. Some of them were put to work creating a terraced display garden at this spot.
The Park Superintendent, Ernest M. Bair, declared in November 1930 that “the spot lends itself perfectly to the making of a sunken garden.”
Water lilies were to be displayed in the eastern rectangular pond,
while a cascading waterfall would spill into a circular pool.
Many changes have been made over time, but the garden remains in essentially the same configuration
and is tended with love and care.
Over the next few days, I will be posting flowers from the Sunken Gardens of Lincoln, Nebraska.
