Spring 2014. Queen of Flowers! The Rose Garden Celebration at NY Botanical Garden, June 7 & 8 2014. The Spring Festival Series Is Almost In New York!
Enjoy your spring, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
Come June, the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden is a sea of warm color, flush with the reds, whites, yellows, and pinks of more than 4,000 blooming plants. In celebration of the delicate beauty that defines this collection, as well as the peak of its seasonal color, stop by for two days of live music, plant care demonstrations and tours with expert rosarians, and light summer refreshments in the shade of the garden’s overlooks.
