I Hit the Flower Jackpot Yesterday . . .
The Jefferson Market Garden is only open to the public on Tuesdays and I had a chance to stop by on the way home yesterday. The roses have started blooming! Mind you, they're hybrid teas for the most part, but they're beautifully maintained. The persons in charge of their rose beds obviously know what they're doing. The yellow iris and red dahlia were also stunning. (The first photo, by the way, was not from the Jefferson Market Garden; this climbing rose resides on 10th Street near 5th Avenue, anchoring the rear of a beautiful Greenwich Village brownstone's garden. I've seen it bloom for several years now and it always offers a full display of blooms.)
