Allen C Haskill Public Gardens New Bedford

I drove past the entrance to the Haskill gardens this morning on my way back home after a morning walk and it reminded me of two things i must go back and visit them soon and 2 I have some shots I had not shared and hence this post.
Starting with this shot of some colorful tulips and a cool little structure there

A little bit about these gardens The late Allen C. Haskell, a lifelong New Bedford resident and famed horticulturist, assembled these six acres—the site of a traditional New England-style common, beautiful historic gardens, and one of the oldest homes in the city—over more than 30 years. Today, it’s a public park and unlikely botanical respite, blooming in the heart of New Bedford.

There not a huge gardens only takes a few minutes to walk around the whole area, but what they may lack of on size they make up in beauty and cool little features which I will share here, such as this cool rock wal.

OK some may not see a rock wall as cool, but I find they catch my eye and is like going back in time

Now this I thought was a unique idea, a Container repurposed as a garden display

They have a little cane plantation, and have chopped cane and invite people to build structures with it, I didnt build anything myself but i would imagine it could be a cool family activity there.
