capital flora

Two days ago I made the trek up to Salt Lake just to wander around downtown. Then I spotted the beautiful flowers. Good thing I had my camera. Would you like to see what I saw? You would? Then you came to the right place.


We'll start with the spectacular hollyhocks in front of the Beehive House. There were at least a half dozen colors of the glorious flower in that little front yard.





Gardens in front of the church office building, looking south with South Temple street in the background.



I don't really know what these flowers are, but I love their happy light orange color.



And finally, a bit of friendly sidewalk graffiti:

Emily, the Hollyhocks are so pretty. The orange flowers are Gazania.

Are you sure landscape architecture isn't an option?
Very nice pictures.
