Relief Society Garden in winter

Sisters of the Relief Society were invited to donate to the development of a garden celebrating roles of womanhood. Although this is not all of the statues, one can see a goodly number of them. Beginning at the top, we see the very beginnings when Joseph handed Emma a five dollar gold piece and said, "All that I have to give to the poor, I shall give to this society." Whenever I see these statues, I think of the Proclamation on the Family. What a remarkable and prophetic document that is. This garden is one of the most beautiful places in Nauvoo in the summer. I'll try to remember to get a shot then for contrast.

I agree. It is beautiful. We only saw it at night, and in the summer. Thanks for the great shot.
