Evening Walk Around Meadowbrook Park

Photos taken last week, when the oppressive heat had lifted a bit - it was only 80 degF instead of 95 as the sun started to set. I had an hour to kill, and I chose to spend it walking around a local park.

The wildflowers don't seem to be impacted by our lack of rain. It was nice to see something green and blooming.

Fields of Gold

As a contrast to the wildflowers and prairie fields, an eclectic sculpture collection adorns the walkways.

Lifted to the Sky

The park also rents out organic garden plots to the public. It was fascinating to check out what people were growing in their 17'x30' spaces - from tomatoes, squash and lots of sunflowers.

Stand Proud

I enjoyed my walk around the park. I need to make a point to get out there more often.

I love your photos. It is reassuring to see that flowers bloom, even in the midst of your heat and without water. Glad that you have had some respite from the heat.

Lovely photos! We're in the grip of super heat here in Georgia. I'll be glad when we get a break.
