I stepped over to take my first photo of the pond in the middle of the park. It has geese and ducks galore living and entertaining the public.
I turned away from the pond and this is what I saw to my right. The building behind is one of several of HCA.

I got off the path around the pond and was standing on the bridge looking toward the Parthenon. The bridge leads into the sunken garden.

I am standing in the sunken garden looking back at the little bridge.

This is a photo of the path around the pond while I am still in the sunken garden.

Looking back and I am sorry to say the cyrtle myrtles are not in bloom yet and the yellow tulips are gone.

Another view of the sunken garden.

I tried but could not get the whole garden in the photo.

I walked west up out of the gardens to be greeted by rows of Red bud trees.

Close up of the train in the northwest corner of the park.

Looks as if the Red buds are holding up the plane.

I was walking back to the east and the path when I saw an unoccupied bench, with a Red bud framed by a dark green background.

Looking up in the Red bud tree.

The Parthenon in the background camouflaged by Cherry Trees.
The Kitty Justice is you have only seen the back path and the west side of the park.

Lady Di,

Wow! This is a lovely and serene place. I too would love to sit on that bench and take in the surroundings. I enjoy visiting places like this and thank you for sharing.

This was a splendid walk, indeed, in your park dominated by beautiful red bud trees. They grow wild here and I guess there too, and the wild ones sprout from birds dropping seed and those live about 15 - 20 years and then when they are so old and gracefully wrinkled, they die. My neighbor just had a nursery plant a new one for just over $250.00. It "ain't" much of a tree yet (small in size but has nice branches) and no buds yet. I assume it is because of the transplant and then it is still cold here. Thirty-nine degrees this morning. Maybe too early.

Yes, my 'BAMBOO' arrived by UPS yesterday. I was stunned, or shocked, or both, at the size. It is really a bamboo that only gets ten feet tall, more or less, but is ideal for screening and it is the clumping type that does not run (and guaranteed) FAR from the clump. And that is why it is called "DWARF" but, what I got fit in a small box in three separate packs. You can see it on my Brookville Daily Photo today.

Glad you like the walk so far. Those benches are scattered throughout the park for weary walker or just to sit on and people watch. Peace

Glad to see y'all as I was worried the pains from the accident had gotten worse. Back at you for being a kind and loving lady too. Peace

Glad you took the walk. I am gonna head over to Brookville to see the Bamboo. What do you mean it does not spread? I thought that was one of the main attributes of Bamboo. Peace
