Flowers around the swimming pool

I LOVE water walking at the Furman Aquatic Center in Ames!

 

Do other water parks beautify your experience with flowers the way Furman does?

 

 

 

  Whoever supported the landscaping, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you heartily!

Red Granite Farm

 

I’ve made several trips to the Ames Farmers’ Market at North Grand Mall this summer.  On my first visit I was struck by the lovely perennials from Red Granite Farm.  Maybe some day I’ll get to visit and photograph their flowers  in their  beds!

I’ve been loving these Cyclone colored lilies around town.  I’m not  sure if the darker ones really qualify as the color “cardinal”, but I think they are very powerful and attractive, especially paired with the lemony gold!
