We have a library on the edge of downtown Binghamton, New York. Just outside the entrance is a garden. There is a church across the street with a carillion. As we entered the garden, it was playing a song.
"Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee"! my friend exclaimed.
"Beethoven's Ode to Joy!", I replied.
We were both right.
The first thing we saw was a rose with three different colored flowers. I've seen two differently colored flowers on a rose plant - but three?
The hostas are finishing up. Here's what they looked like at the beginning of July.
The garden has a gazebo, and a picnic bench. One day I may just bring my lunch out there.
After I got home, I looked up the lyrics to the hymn my friend heard. It ends:
"Ever singing, march we onward,Perfect music for enjoying a garden.
victors in the midst of strife;
joyful music lifts us sunward
in the triumph song of life."
Do you know of another library that has a garden?
