I've been driving by this flower garden in the golf course for weeks and finally decided to take its picture. I'm not sure what prompted the planting of this oasis, but I've enjoyed it.
While I was there, I walked around in Audubon Park, which adjoins the Audubon Golf Course. I was particularly noticing the wildflowers on this walk:
I did see some birds and squirrels and actually got a picture of the woodpecker. Do you see it on the trunk of this tree?
The toadstools were so bright it looked they wanted to be noticed:
The park is a wonderful place to walk, picnic, people-watch and just be out in nature while still being right in the middle of the city.
You can tell from this map that it's right in town, not at all out of the way.
