Here’s a serene scene from the Conservatory Garden in NYC’s Central Park. This is a preview to next week, when I’ll be featuring a few plant combos from the spectacularly talented designers there. Annuals, perennials, tropicals, and hedges mingle to dazzling effect in this gem of a garden. Stay tuned.

    Green - Serene. A friend whose favorite color is green indirectly helped me put those 2 words together for myself. For some reason I thought green was an odd color to be her favorite...but one day as I was relaxing in the most green area of my yard enclosed by beautiful plantings (with only a few white blossoms) and an old-old tree, I realized that Green is Serene. Now after the Big Blizzard, I can take myself back there for a sense of summer calm. Thank you for sharing this photo -- it is a beautiful place in Central Park and a good reminder of warm weather for me in the midwest.
