WHILE STROLLING IN THE PARK ONE DAY......... the merry merry month of October!

This is the largest park in our town. It has a little zoo with goats, chickens, and deer. There is also a large new playground with one of those big, colorful, multi-activity units that looks like the kids would love it. There is also a beautiful garden area, with lovely plantings.
I wish the sun would have been shining, but at least it wasn't raining.
Beautiful shade of pink, isn't it?
I don't know what these are called, but I really like them.
This is all new planting along the hill, and the restraining wall. I'm guessing it will only get more beautiful as time goes by.
So simple, yet so beautiful. Hey, these flowers are simply beautiful!

And it's much better to be walking in the park and taking pictures of flowers than watching TV and the constant reports on how low the Dow is closing today. SCARY.

These are such beautiful pictures! I'm afraid most of the flowers in these parts are starting to fizzle, but glad to see you enjoying them while they last...the flower you weren't sure about is called Celosia Argentea Plumosa or "Cock's Comb"...I have them all over the place...but yours are prettier...mine are faded and droopy...ha! kind of like me!

Oh I love that little park. I think that would be a great place to take family photos, and just beautiful pictures like you took.
