After the grayed neutrals of an Empty Beach, the sunny saturated shades of Greenwood City Garden’s flamboyant flowers are a cheery contrast.
Several garden blogging friends — Janet, Julie A., Julie H., and Karin — got together recently and toured gardens during the Festival of Flowers in Greenwood, South Carolina. (We also visited the lovely Rice Elementary School Roots and Shoots Garden.)
Can you believe the size of this hibiscus? The shrub was full of blooms, all huge—kind of like big pink frisbees. And speaking of ‘bees …
This garden hummmmmms! It’s a pollinator’s dream.
I poked my nose into this canna to see if anybody was crawling around in there.

Daylilies, black-eyed Susans, marigolds, and red zinnias —
— they’re food for the soul…and the wildlife.
The Greenwood City Garden is at the corner of West Cambridge and Calhoun Street. It is always open.
