A Look Inside Minneapolis: The Lake Harriet Rose Garden

One of my favorite places to savor the change of the seasons in my hometown is the Lake Harriet Rose Garden. Located just a short block off my favorite urban lake, The Lake Harriet Rose Garden always inspires no matter what time of year.

My two favorite seasons to capture the color inside the Rose Garden are Spring and Fall. Different perennials pop up each month and it is always exciting to see what I will find. After a hot couple of weeks, today finally felt a bit more like fall. The brilliant blue September sky cast its luminous glow across Minneapolis and I knew I’d have to go take some photos of the beautiful fall flowers at the Lake Harriet Rose Garden. Here is a peak at what I found. Enjoy!

  1. So lovely, Nicole! Looking at these gorgeous flowers reminds me of the fact that I went to the market this morning and bought nearly 2 dozen long stemmed roses for $4. They are the most exquisite I’ve ever seen!

  7. Lovely photos. Makes me homesick. The other place I love to visit at the change of seasons is the Landscape Arboretum and apple orchards and…

    • Thanks! I love the Arboretum too especially on a perfect fall day when the leaves have turned. They are finally just starting to slightly turn. I love fall here. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
