I spent part of last Sunday at the Central Park Conservancy, entry on 105th and 5th Avenue, while the wisteria we went to see was clearly past its prime there was still so much to enjoy. The white azaleas were breathtaking and some were the variety with a slight fragrance. The tulips depending on where the light hit them we still perfect while others were waning. There are so many other beautiful plants often not seen in many gardens anymore, like trillium, one of my favorites, forget me nots, euphoria in green and black (another fav), Helleborus, bleeding hearts, lady’s mantle and gorgeous textural blends of ferns and hostas. These gardens remind of some of the gorgeous gardens I saw on the Open Days Garden Tours, including Bunny Williams incredible gardens. These tours are self guided tours all around the country where people open up their homes and gardens for a day or weekend for other garden lovers to enjoy. Some gardens are about incredible plantings while others about specimen plants. Here are some more photos from my afternoon at the Conservancy Gardens in Central Park. These gardens are so well planned and thought out, from many angles. So many places you can look thru plants or breaks in trees to see other beautiful flowers, some you may have walked past but get to enjoy a second time a second way.
