Jefferson Market Garden - Roses
Walking through the Jefferson Market Garden on Greenwich Ave., one can tell that autumn is here, despite the warm weather and sunny skies. The garden seems "sleepy," as if sensing the approaching cold of winter. The plants appear diminished, tired. The mature trees that shade much of the garden have even started to shed a few leaves, although serious fall "color" is still a month away. Many of the roses, however, are providing a final late-summer display, one of the obvious advantages of more recent hybrids. Enjoy!
