Another new project, Municipal Parks and Gardens.

Almost every town or borough council has a budget for parks and gardens, some large and some small. Some local authorities take great pride in their parks where others deem it as a chore. All towns provide a park or open space for their local community, however, this may be no more than a recreation field. My interest is in areas which include some form of formal garden or redeeming feature. There may also be places where there is no park with garden but the town might be ablaze with colourful tubs and planters which will be maintained by the parks and gardens department. I feel blessed to live in a town which has a number of parks and a highly active and skilled parks and gardens department which maintains them. The picture below is one of my favourite haunts the rose garden which I visit regularly throughout the season, with camera of course.
