Well, I'm so far behind my traveling posts that I'm just going to keep going with the last trip I was on to eastern Pennsylvania and NYC.  The next stop on the trip was the New York Botanical Garden.  I was there in 2009 in May and that was a wonderful time to be in the garden because they still had spring bulbs, but they were transitioning to the summer season.  This was also a great time because the herb garden was very lush and the main exhibit about Monet and his garden was beautiful and reminded me of when The Herbal Husband and I were in Giverny in 2007.   Here is a photo of that trip for comparison.  Karen D. did a great job.

Monet's Garden in Giverny in 2007
We took a tram ride to get an overview of the garden.  It is immense.  Saw the rose garden from a far.  I loved the vertical gardening for NYC dwellers at the gift shop.  They had just started installing the Manolo Valdes Monumental Sculpture exhibit and it will run through next May 26th.  The herb garden was very lovely and I share more photos of that garden tomorrow.   Lots to see at NYBG.  Hope you had a great day.  The rose geranium jelly will be made tomorrow.  Talk to you later.

It looks wonderful. I have seen some very clever vertical gardening, perhaps I should give it a try!
The herb garden looks very healthy, and I like the idea of getting an overview of the gardens from the tram.

We've long been inspired by urban art and have finally created a collection that pays homage to this secret addiction of ours!
