Spring Flowers

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by azsunluvr on June 24, 2003

Thousands of tulips in all varieties and colors are a gift to spring visitors to Salt Lake City’s Temple Square. The gardens have been recognized with prestigious awards from gardening organizations, but are designed to display the beauty and diversity of God’s creations. The fondest hope of those tending these gardens is that visitors will experience feelings of peace and reverence as they stroll through these lovely flowerbeds, 150 years in the making.

The garden flowers change with the seasons, utilizing 50 designers and 50 planters. Those who plant the flowers and bulbs are often volunteers. My own daughter, along with her church group, was able to help plant bulbs that would bloom in spring. Fall and spring have a "down time" of less than 10 days between plantings.

While I strolled through the grounds on a Saturday afternoon, many brides and grooms posed romantically for their wedding photographers in front of the vividly-colored tulips. The Salt Lake Temple is the centerpiece of the city and a spring or summer Saturday will boast a parade of wedding parties in the square.
