A few weeks ago, I had promised all of you the second part of my New York Botanical Garden series and I felt it was a good a time as any. It is a bit lengthy but it is more photos and less blah blah. Because the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden is one of the best in the world.
Be sure to scroll all the way down to see what my blogging friends came up with this month.
It was completed in 1988 with the generous support of David Rockefeller who donated $1 million, and named the garden to honor his wife Peggy, a horticulturalist and conservationist, who loved roses.
Many of the roses are named after celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor, Julia Child and Paul McCartney. This one is named the yellow submarine.
The variety of plants have been selected for their resistance to disease and pests, making it one of the most sustainably managed public gardens.
It is recognized as one of the best rose gardens in the world!
Now hop on down to see what my friends have in store for you today.
