A Public Park

This park is near my home.  It's a small, informal garden with large boxwoods, lots of spring bulbs, azaleas, various trees, lilac bushes, daylilies, wisteria and peonies.  I don't know who designed the plantings or who maintains it.  It's very natural, full of color and it has a very peaceful atmosphere.

Is it predominantly a spring garden blooms-wise, or are there areas where year-round planting comes into its own as the seasons move?

This garden mainly features spring blooms and that is typical of our area because summers are so hot, humid and we often have severe drought. There is a bed of day lilies that I will try to capture in photos this summer.  The entrance to this garden is graced with a huge weeping cherry tree, there is a wisteria arbor, a good display of peonies.  I will try to keep capturing them in photos, but I missed so much because we've had an unusual amount of rain, every day and gloom.
