Tag Archives: Leif Erikson Park

Last week I took a walk through Leif Erickson Park in Duluth to check on the flowers. The roses were not in bloom yet and one of the caretakers indicated that it would be another couple of weeks. Seems that things are a couple of weeks behind because of of the late spring snow. There were still a variety of flowers blooming.

There were a variety of Tulips blooming.

There were some onions and Bleeding Hearts bloomins.

The Azaleas were in full bloom.

This is the third year I’ve photographed the 4th of July fireworks in Duluth. The first year I shot from our condo balcony. Last year I shot from the South Breakwater down in Canal Park. This year I shot from the lake front on the east end of Leif Erikson Park. I found a nice rock to sit on with tripod partly in the lake.

More Duluth fireworks photos can be found on my website.
