Des Moines Home Owners Are Surrounded By Scenic Views

Views of the Des Moines skyline are visible, and a reminding contrast with the solitude of the setting. Three islands highlight perennial aquatic plants including Japanese water and copper irises. Take time to admire the petals in the Wells Fargo Rose Garden. Roses of all colors are fragrant and pretty, encouraging many to add a rose bush or two in the landscaping of their Des Moines home. Views of the Des Moines River can be seen while in the Principal Belvedere. Benches are perfect spots for relaxing with a good book while taking in the sights.
