Back on Planting Day at Riverside Park (May 16, 2009), Gloria Kishton broke away from the crowd working on the main flowerbeds near Washington Avenue (see our posting for details and photos).  Instead, Gloria tended to needed trimming, weeding and planting around and atop the two large planters situated along the paved path located at the end of Governor’s Lane.  Last Sunday, July 19, 2009, I stopped to admire the fruits of Gloria’s handiwork, and decided to feature the planters in a sunset posting here at suns along the Mohawk — as we did this year with tulips and daylilies.

The pictures at the top of this post were taken just before sunset (I will not show my ignorance by trying to name the various plants).   Here are a few shots taken once the sun had started to color the sunset sky:
