It’s a beautiful day in First Capitol Park and it’s not too late for you to enjoy it as well.
The area around the Discovery Garden had been freshly mowed. Plumbago was electrifying in it’s blue beauty. Firebush was a gorgeous red and Texas Star Hibiscus was blooming.
After I finished transplanting a small Firebush that came up in the walkway I weeded and enjoyed the relatively cool weather and cloud cover. I discovered that Firebush has a very long tap root.
I was finally able to identify the name of the Butterfly Bush. It is Asclepias curassavica.
When I finished my chores I listened to my favorite music and enjoyed the beauty of the garden. After a while a nice couple walked by and I gave them a tour of the garden. They were very nice and quite knowledgeable about plants. It was a wonderful time of renewal. Please go out and experience what I experienced.
