What’s beautiful now? The light.

As we approach the end of Daylight Savings Time (not this weekend, don’t freak out!) the days grow shorter and the shadows grow longer, and somehow the quality of the light just gets more and more lovely. Colors pop, contrast heightens, and flowers and leaves seem to glow from within. It is one of the most beautiful times to come and take photographs at the Garden!

Find the drama in the Native Plant Garden, the Thain Family Forest, the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden (trust me, head there just as the sun is beginning to set), the Perennial Garden, the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden, and inside the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.

For day-to-day updates on what we’re seeing around grounds, be sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter where we post updates from our staff and visitors. Need help getting around? Our iPhone app can help out there. It’s free and available in the App Store.
