McNeely Conservatory summer flower garden

50253One of my favorite places to go, whether to photograph or to soothe my soul is the McNeely Conservatory in Como Park.  The Sunken Garden flower shows are a feast of color to the eyes and a treat to my sense of smell.  Right now the summer flowers are on exhibit in the garden.  I was fortunate to be there one night this past week when there were only a few fellow photographers.  It was peaceful, calm, and very quiet except for the water flowing at the base of the sculpture.  This bronze piece is titled “Play Days” and was created by Harriet Frishmuth in the early 1900’s.  On this night the young woman was surrounded by a beautiful reflection of the evening sky and the blooming flowers of summer.
