Visit the Garden
Last month I said that water brings me calm and so is a favorite destinations when I need to relax. A very close second is a visit to the garden. Any garden, but especially the New York Botanic Garden (@NYBG) in June because…ROSES!
I’ve never met a garden I didn’t like. The NYBG or New York Botanic Garden is a gem. I missed the May visit which is spectacular for azaleas. But I did arrive in perfect time to visit the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden.
Completed in 1988 by David Rockefeller and named for his wife, “The Rose Garden has received many international awards, and is considered to be among the world’s best rose gardens.” according to the NYBG site.
June Means Roses
Roses require lots of TLC – the Bronx Botanic Garden has a really great blog with lots of great information for gardener to help roses thrive.
The NYBG website has a rose color meter called ROSE WATCH! How happy was I to visit on a week that had 80 percent peak color. They weren’t lying. Magnificent in color and scent.
