Rock Garden - NYBG

Post by Jenny » Sun Apr 11, 2010 9:13 am

Spring blasting away at the NYBG Rock Garden. The weather during the previous week had been unseasonably warm. On one day temperatures reached 90!

Most of the work I did on my volunteer day was clearing away english ivy (Hedera helix) and ranuncula (Ranunculus repens) from around a beautiful young Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum) that had been planted in the Fall and 2 blooming camellia trees (not sure which species) which were planted a few weeks ago. (Of course, these pics are not in the video because after working several hours I just wanted to get away from that cove of the garden!)

Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them. ~Bill Vaughn

You always do so well at choosing your background music. Wonderful!
