Photos from a recent Camera Work photopage at the PB. This little garden in Red Wing’s Colvill Park was a lovely, peaceful place to visit. I had no luck with humming birds or butterflies, but still enjoyed the colorful flowers.

Red Wing’s Discovery Garden, located in Colville Park along the Mississippi River, features eight different sections, including a Faerie Garden, Fragrance Garden, Cook’s Garden and Hummingbird/Butterfly Garden. The garden, which was completed in 2009, is a fitting compliment to its neighbor, the handicap accessible Universal Playground.
