Red Wing Community Gardens

Friday, September 9th, 2011

One of the cooler things about living in Red Wing, Minnesota? Community gardens. There are gardens at Colvill Park, Spring Creek Avenue and the corner of E. Fourth and Bluff. These organic team efforts really are what community is all about.

Here are a few pictures from the garden at Fourth and Bluff. As you can see, summer is winding down, but the garden is in full bloom. To find out how you can get involved in one of our community gardens, call 651.385.3674.

Even on a sweltering, gray, humid day, the smallest sliver of blue sky makes the rose garden at Central Park look like an oasis in the desert!

The Mayflies are coming!

Your friendly Travel Counselor spied a few mayflies over the weekend, which means that it’s only a matter of time before the city parking garage windows are coated in the little buggers. Hopefully this year they won’t need to snowplow them off the Eisenhower Bridge. For more shots of the mayfly extravaganza, check out our Flickr page!

No trip to Red Wing is complete without a hike to the top of Barn Bluff. Don’t worry, there are stairs. For part of the hike.

This young lady has the right idea. The river’s, like, right there. Why not use it on a day like today?

A good time was had by all last weekend in Red Wing, and the Red Wing Hotels Travel Counselor has the photos to prove it. If you didn’t throw on your PJs and roam the streets, here’s what you missed!

Nothing says 'fun' like cotton candy.

"Oh, nothing. Just sitting on a bench in front of a flower store in my jammies, eating an ice cream cone. What are YOU doing?"
