Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden
The husband wanted to go to the NY Botanical Gardens for Father's Day, who am I to object to walking around in green wonder for an afternoon? I did request, however, that this time we see the rose garden as last time we skipped it, too long a hike across the place and we were there for the Emily Dickinson exhibit. The youngest came with us and enjoyed the cut-through the forest plants section as it reminded us all of beloved Vermont, and then the Rose Garden. Past what must have been magnificent -early June- the blooms were like aging divas, still stunners but a bit worn around the edges, still fragrant, still attracting bee suitors, still quite worth the visit.
