Manito Park in Spokane
After exploring Riverfront Park, I drove down to Manito Park to see the rose gardens in bloom.
It took me awhile to find the roses, but there was a pretty pond when I first drove in.
I also found a very nice Japanese garden.
I caught a pic of this fish in the pond.
I had almost left when I finally found the rose garden.
So many pretty flowers.
Some had interesting names. This one was called Cinderella.
These were some of my favorites, so I was a bit disappointed they were just named after a person I've never heard of - "Dee Bennett." I liked the size of the blossoms and the variety of colors.
I got a few pretty close up shots of some of the roses.
I love this duo!
These are the kind of flowers I first encountered in Italy that remind me of long, colorful broccoli.
Bloomin Onion. Onions are generally the bane of my existence, but I can handle these onions!
Next I wandered into the conservatory area.
I'm sure this would be a lovely place to take wedding pictures.
