Gardens at Sinsinawa Mounds

An explosion of color found in the gardens at Sinsinawa Mounds, the mother house of the Sinsinawan Dominicans, a religious order of women established in 1847.

    The gardens at Sinsinawa Mounds sound nice. Are they big?

      No, there are not large garden spaces. Instead flowers are packed into little spaces, spreading bits of color in unexpected places. Not all the plants are even in yet, as we just passed our frost date. Soon, the annuals will all be in the earth.

    Lovely purple explosion… and a very neat flower. I’m always attracted to the purple flowers. 🙂

    I can’t think of the name of these flowers, but….aren’t they really, really tiny? Great capture.

      I’m hoping someone comes up with the name. I can’t figure it out, and I like to name my flowers. And the flower is about 3 or 4 inches in diameter, so it’s not the tiny flower you were thinking of.

    it looks like…some kind of skinny passion flower. Whatever, it is beautiful and I have not seen one like it.
