While on vacation in southern New Jersey, we visited a garden named Leaming's Run. It was filled with mostly annual flowers, and followed a meandering path through a wooded area.
Some beautiful daylilies here, backed by some cleome. Don't you love the huge elephant's ear?
Some beautiful annuals, including a red canna. Oh how I wish my garden was half so lovely!
A gazebo overlooking the water. This was a terrific place to rest, and escape the hot sun for a few minutes.
The garden is cultivated on the sight of the last remaining whaler's house in New Jersey. In addition to the gardens, there are several log buildings, a small colonial garden and livestock, which "bring to life the challenges faced by the whalers who first settled in Cape May County."
