Local gardens in Manhattan

Yesterday we went to see how things are going on the Highline- as always, tourist-full, but lush and interesting. I like to visit several times a season to see what's in bloom. The Southern magnolias are in flower, along with enormous Smokebush, and a tree that I wish I could identify with enormous tropical-looking leaves and huge white blooms. Many differnt Heuchera, grasses- Juncus, even crowded it's worth a visit.

The other garden that I visit regularly is just below the Holocaust Museum in Hudson River Park,and just above Battery park. Both the Highline and these gardens, as I understand it, were designed by Piet Oudolf, and they incorporate some exotic plants and very local plantlife and they're stunning.

Great to bike to -
