Leif Erickson Flower Garden

Spontaneously in 2017 we made a fast 2-day trip up north to Grand Marais and Duluth.  The scenery was just beautiful.  Clear blue skies, mid 80 degrees, sun glistening off Lake Superior, green majestic evergreens, and birch trees everywhere.  I call it Gods country.  Love it, love it, love it!  The sound of the surf splashing against the rocks is so soothing.  The air smells so clean and refreshing.  Our over-night accommodations were perfect at Blue Fin Bay.  It couldn’t have been any better.

My favorite place to stop on our way back was the Leif Erickson Gardens in Duluth.  Roses, roses, roses.  The scent was absolutely heavenly.  They are so beautiful in majestic colors. It’s a fabulous place for pictures with the gazebo and the harbor in the distance- just lovely.  It’s unbelievable how the staff keep the flowers so well groomed. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer and a long Labor Day weekend!
