A Trip to Lincoln’s Sunken Garden

I subscribe to an email program called “Only in Your State”. I started receiving emails from them regarding the state of Nebraska during the COVID lockdown. I learned about a lot of interesting things to see and do in Nebraska. One of them was the Sunken Garden in Lincoln, Nebraska. Every year volunteers pick a theme and create a colorful carpet of flowers for visitors to walk through. In the late spring they have thousands of tulips. In the summer, they have cleared out the tulips and plants a variety of colorful flowers and plants. I love all of them. I will only make it for the tulips this year, as we will move prior to the summer flowers growing in. In the spring they have lots of flowering trees in Lincoln as well. Last year, I happened upon a historical church called First Plymouth Congregational Church. It has a tall bell tower and a courtyard with lots of flowering trees and benches to sit in the silence. Last year, I was still so raw with Joe’s death. I was taking photos of the flowering trees dropping their petals as the wind blew through them. The scent was intoxicating. There was this chattering noise and I realized there was a squirrel in a tree right in front of me. I took several photos of him and to this day, they are some of my favorites. Well, the squirrel was still there…playing in the same tree. The tree wasn’t in full bloom yet, but he let me take some good photos of him. I didn’t bring my telephoto lens, so you can see how close I was. A robin also posed for me. I thought I would share my last photos of the Sunken Garden in Lincoln with you. Luckily, I was able to switch my account over to Montana two weeks ago, so I am already making a list of places I want to go to when we move there!
