Bloom Watch: Wednesday, June 23
Rosebud watch continues! With each week bringing new blooms, we have decided to explore the Rose Garden and the Lakewalk this summer. We will meet on Wednesday, June 23 at 1 pm at the parking lot by the Rose Garden on 13th Avenue East and London Road. After checking out the Rose Garden, we will walk on the paved Lakewalk. If you would rather skip the walk, there are benches in the park and along the Lakewalk. There are a lot of photo possibilities along one of Duluth’s favorite Lakewalk stops.
