The flower beds in Wichita, Kansas, were decked out in colorful and festive fall flowers, plants and grasses for the town's 150th birthday celebration, The Wichita Eagle reports.

The gardens in front of the Sedgwick County Courthouse, designed and landscaped by Charlene Seymour and her team of volunteer master gardeners, featured flowering plants and grasses that had contrasting hues that played off each other, the news source reports. The gardens featured Double Knockout Pink and Rainbow Knockout roses and Vista Bubblegum Petunias.

The entrances to several east side neighborhoods, including Greenleaf at Tallgrass and Country Place, had beds that combined shrubs, perennials, roses, grasses and annuals, the news source reports. Red begonias were a focal point, as were the Diana chrysanthemums and cherry, orange and yellow zinnias.

"I'm a real believer that we need to have more greenery and green space downtown and in all parts of the community," county commissioner Tim Norton told the news source.

While landscaping outdoors is aesthetically pleasing, flower enthusiasts can also bring some of the cheer indoors with season sunflower bouquets or aster flowers.
