Olbrich Home Garden Tour, Part 3

Part 3; the final stretch for the Olbrich Home Garden Tour. The second day of the tour my friend and I drove south to Oregon, Wisconsin once more. First, we visited a well organized flower farm. Each area around the house was arranged with care. The gardens along the side of the house were decorated with whimsical pottery accents, plates and even a teapot pouring a cuppa!

3a parte; la parte final de las visitas de jardines arregladas por Olbrich. El segundo día de las visitas, mi amiga y yo conducimos hacia el sur a Oregon, Wisconsin una vez más. Primero, visitamos a una finca de flores pequeña y bien ordenada. Cada área alrededor de la casa estaba planeada con cuidado. Los jardines al lado izquierdo de la casa están decorados con arte caprichoso; platos, y incluso una tetera sirviendo una taza de té.

We met the two women farmers who greeted us from their folding chairs set up in the shade on the side of the house.

Nos saludaron las dueñas finqueras desde sus sillas portatiles en el lado de la casa con sombra.

They had set up a beautiful back patio with comfortable chairs set up for a circle of conversation.

The farmers were growing several crops for themselves; cucumbers, squash, beans, and parsley.

Crecieron verduras para ellas en su huerto; pepinos, calabaza, habichuelas y perejil.

We found so many details to see, that our time evaporated. When we set off to the next garden, we arrived as they were closing up at 3:05 pm… Fortunately, we saved for last Meadow View Park, open until 10 pm.

Encontramos tantos detalles fascinantes, que se nos escapó el tiempo. Cuando fuimos al próximo jardín, llegamos justo cuando se cerraron a las 3:05 pm… Afortunadamente, dejamos para el destino final un parque local Meadow View (Vista del prado) que esta abierto hasta las 10 de la noche.

The park has an extensive meadow of wildflowers. We took the opportunity to take a walk on the paths around it.

El parque tiene un prado extensivo de flores silvestres. Tomamos la oportunidad para caminar en los senderos alrededor del prado.

I like seeing the wild purple bergamot. We have a red colored cultivar in our garden.

Me gusta ver bergamot silvestre morado. Tenemos en casa una variación roja.

So long, prairie, so long, house tour!

¡Hasta la vista, prado! ¡Hasta la vista jardines bonitos!
