City Bathed in Natural Colors

A gallery of photos of flowers around Long Beach.

Just look around Long Beach and the colors of many flowers pop everywhere, from the bulkheads of the Canals to apartment fronts on Broadway to the parking malls of Park Avenue. Patch photographers decided to pause during their travels and take some snapshots at the city’s flora to showcase the different varieties in this week’s Viewfinder gallery of photos.

This regular feature aims to put a lens on the many attractive and interesting scenes throughout the bustling beach town, with its distinct neighborhoods and diverse population.

If you have photos of city scenes that you would like us to consider for our Viewfinder gallery, please email them — along with descriptive captions — to josephk@patch.com. Photos must be sent with the photographer's permission.

Thanks, Kathy. Flowers are not my forte.

I love flowers, but question why the city spends a fortune on annuals each year rather than planting perennials.

Good question. A blend of perennial wildflowers would be nice and save time and labor. The ornamental kale in the fall is a bit extravagant IMHO. Following the money might partially answer your question.
