This is the last post about our visit to Mayfield Park in Austin. The back area of the garden is devoted to flowers and is planted and maintained by volunteers. I suspect they also selected and furnished the flowers.
We visited on a Saturday, which, of course, was a busy day. Lots of photographers were taking pictures of couples, probably engagement pictures. Others were shooting high school girls; so I figured that were doing graduation pix. All this to say that I was trying to stay out of their way. So I didn’t feel that I saw all the different flowers.
This appeared to be a new plot. All the plots of individuals ran together, so it was difficult to know if each plot was small like this one or if this part had just been replaced. Occasionally, a volunteer’s name was displayed on a raised metal sign.
Having volunteers responsible for the garden area certainly helps out the park employees. Since the flowers are seasonal and not native, I wonder how often they are changed out.
Lovely park to visit when one is in Austin.
