Sunken Gardens and Conservatory in Mitchell Park Milwaukee, Wis
Mitchell Park, 64 acres, might be called the "Flower Park of Milwaukee County." Thousands of people attend the chrysanthemum and orchid shows which have earned national recognition. With its magnificent sunken gardens, formal flower beds and lily pond, open pavilion and natural amphitheatre and its playgrounds, this park is a delight in summer and winter.
The original conservatory in Mitchell Park was built in 1898, but was in need of so many repairs that it was decided to demolish it in 1955 and build a totally new design.
In 1967 the final of three bee hive shaped domes were completed to replace the conservatory. The domes each house a different environment. They are the Temperate Dome, Tropical Dome and Arid Dome.
The historic outdoor Sunken Gardens built in 1905 were removed in 1994 when the original four lion-head fountains were put into storage. Today there are reflecting ponds in the park. A current project plans to reclaim the lion-head fountains for the new design in the works.

Today I dropped off some of my Mini Halloween Matchboxes and greeting cards at Simply Renewed that I recently created. Each mini box has a surprise inside! These are fun little gifts for Halloween.
I also brought in more ephemera. If you are looking for a vintage black coat size small I hung one near the new old vintage hats I brought in. I can’t remember every thing I dropped off today. Stop by and see all the wonderful treasures.
