The First United Methodist Church on Skyline Parkway A.K.A. “The CopperTop,” Has several gardens. I’m guessing about 7, but I might be wrong. I’m sure someone will correct me. Several members of the church take turns wedding and watering the gardens, as well as planning them. A couple of spots have benches as the parking lot is the perfect place to perch for a view of Lake Superior when the ships are heading for the canal. (We even have a butterfly garden, but that’s a post for another time.)
This is my first year volunteering to upkeep 2 of the gardens. These peonies are not in “my” spot, but they were so pretty I couldn’t help but take a photo.
Couldn’t take any beautiful ship photos today because of the fog and rain. It was raining so much that my little doggie wouldn’t go outside to go potty. So finally we walked outside with her. But that’s not a good image to think about. Think about the beautiful blossoming trees in Duluth and how the water helps them grow. We get 3 to 4 months of summer, we appreciate all the beauty we get
How many bees do you see? Is the insect on the lower left a bee?
