July Alternative RR (1) - VIII

I guess this is the last cards of this RR. All my cards have been received and i've received all cards except 1, but i didn't send a card to the person either. I'll only send a card if i receive her card. Fair enough, i think!!

Jennifer "jenhart75" sent this card from St. Cloud, Minnesota with the Munsinger Clemens Gardens.
"Munsinger Gardens and Clemens Gardens are two distinct but adjacent gardens on the banks of the Mississippi River.
Munsinger Gardens are informal with winding flower-bordered paths under tall pines, and date from 1915 when the city purchased the former site of a sawmill as a park. The gardens themselves were constructed primarily in the 1930s by the Works Progress Administration. Projects from this period included planting trees and flowerbeds, and building rock-lined paths, a lily pond, and a fountain. The first greenhouse was built in 1938; it has subsequently been replaced. The gardens were refurbished and expanded in the 1980s.
The Clemens Gardens were developed primarily in the 1990s by Bill and Virginia Clemens, who then donated them to the City of St. Cloud. They include six gardens in a formal European style with American plantings and fountains." - in: wikipedia
