A quick side trip … Munsinger Clemens Gardens

Heading pic Munsteinger gardens.jpgTwo weeks ago, we went on a day trip, traveling to about twenty cities west and north of our house. Our first (surprise) stop that day was Munsinger Clemens Garden, located on the east side of St. Cloud, Minnesota, across from the campus of the University of Minnesota – St. Cloud (one of my alma maters). (For more information on the gardens, click HERE.)

Although early in the season, the gardens were still beautiful. We arrived mid-morning. The air was humid – with a promise of very warm afternoon temperatures. Although still a little unsteady from my recent medical adventures, where there are flowers, I must go. I managed to slowly wander around a very small portion of the Clemons Garden, which was established in the 1990’s and covers about seven acres.  This is what I found … Munsteinger Gardens collage 1.jpg

If you ever have a chance to visit the gardens, please do. It is well worth the effort. You can spend many joyful hours there – sitting and relaxing, taking photos, or just wandering around.

Thanks for reading. I hope you will come again.
