It just feels like I’m repeating pictures. When you post in different clubs (like Sactown Photogs), online challenges (like Lens-Artists), repetitive image are the result. So here we are at the World Peace Garden in Sacramento. Some images may seem familiar to you, but you haven’t seen the entire beauty of this small park just across from the State capitol.

On the morning Ray and I met there, I arrived at 9 a.m., and the park had few visitors. It was quiet and peaceful. I fell in love with the place instantly! As people came, it remained quiet and peaceful. I actually came to take pictures in the rose garden, but there was so much more.

Let’s take a tour!

First the roses. This garden is not as big as others in Sacramento, but the roses are just as beautiful.

In the middle of the garden were two memorials. One was for the fire fighters, who in additions to normal duties during the year, fight our large fires during the summer. This year an unusual dry thunder and lightning storm sparked several fires across California. They have called these “Complex fires” because they are fires next to each other in certain areas of the State.

The second memorial is dedicated to the veterans who fought in the Vietnam War. This was particular moving for me because it was so well done and my husband fought in that war.

And the grounds were just beautiful.

Remember I said the park was across from our capitol building. Here’s the awesome view!

I’ve shown you a lot of images, but I just had to show you this beautiful garden as I totally saw it. Take care everyone!

  1. These are beautiful Anne. The flowers, of course, are beautiful but I loved the memorials especially. The fire memorial with just the jacket and hat is truly wonderful

  2. So beautiful garden and photos, Anne!!! Some of those rose portraits are exquisit with that delicate bokeh. And the memorials are beautiful, so many details to photograph! Hope the fires are controlled now in California! Have a wonderful weekend!!

    1. Thanks Mercedes! Some of the fires are still not contained, but at least the smoke has abated here in Sacramento. I thought the sculptor did an amazing job on the Vietnam Memorial. It made it easy to shoot. Take care!

  3. Beautiful flowers and monuments, Anne. I can see why you chose this place. I especially love the flowers’ various colors and the beautiful light in your first set of roses. Have a great weekend, too.
