One Last Summer Stroll Through the Garden

I must admit that summer is starting to slip away.  Although you would have never known it this Labor Day weekend with the hot and humid beach weather here in Wisconsin.

As I promised in my earlier post, Celebrating Garden Beauty--A Garden Tea Tablescape, I am now going to take you through the entire West of the Lake Gardens located in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.  With the high humidity levels this holiday weekend, the trip to the Gardens, which are located on the shores of Lake Michigan, was a very pleasant escape from the unbearable heat.  I wish to thank my sweet daughter, Morgan, who was in town visiting us for the extended weekend, for taking some of the lovely pictures too.

So without more of my lengthy writing, grab your cup of coffee, tea or glass of wine and lets take that last slow summer stroll through the West of the Lake Gardens.


  1. It was a nasty hot & humid weekend, wasn't it? We have been to those gardens a few years ago. So very pretty!! My flowers look tired.... I continue watering and dead-heading but they look exhausted. Kind of like I do as I continue to water and dead-head! :-)

  2. Gorgeous gardens!! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!
