Flowers in Lake Placid Village Part 3

 Before we talk flowers, I want to show you this view from the 1980 Olympic Arena. What a great view of the international flags with the mountains off in the distance. Our campground was somewhere in those mountains. If you look very carefully, you can see the outline of the ski jump a few miles away.
 Now back to the flowers of Lake Placid. I thought this grouping in a pretty container was very interesting combination of flowers and colors.
  I love these this container filled with all yellow even better! I especially love those petunias so much I want to find some for myself next year.
  These two shop windows have lovely plantings in rustic stone boxes.
Below is a shot of some flowers planted near the Olympic arenas- what a pretty combination of white, pink and yellow.
 These black-eyed Susans overlook the commemorative plaque for the Sonia Henie Ice Fountain.
  This clock and stone planter, to me, typify the charming style of Lake Placid.
 And another beautifully planted stone garden near the arenas and vistor center. I love the unique combination of flowers planted alongside a spruce tree.
  Another day of our trip was over. We shared a pizza as the sun set on the Olympic village of Lake Placid.
Next stop....the King's Garden at Fort Ticonderoga.
