Early this morning I went to Lincoln to visit the Sunken Gardens.
Lincoln is only 27 miles from Murdock; Omaha 22. Murdock is conveniently located between the two, right off of I-80.
Anyway, I was at the gardens at 8am so as to beat the heat. AND I was not disappointed. The gardens are in full bloom and loving the heat.
I was so impressed. I admit I don't know much about the gardens, other than it's a Park of the City of Lincoln and that a lot of volunteers (who love the garden) help take care of it.
Not a plant seemed wilted, which is saying a lot since Nebraska has been caught up in a drought filled heat wave of high 90's and 100 degrees for the past few weeks.
I didn't notice one weed.
I did see one worker with a small bucket of a couple of weeds she had pulled
I took 86 photos, while in the gardens.
As you can see, there are cars around the outside edge of the gardens but while strolling around I didn't even notice the cars nor the noise.
Across the street is the Lincoln Zoo. I didn't go to the Zoo, but I did stroll the Rose Gardens.
I'll post some photos of those beautiful gardens later.
Both, the Sunken Gardens and the Rose Gardens are FREE and well worth the time.
