Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens:
As I write this, we are reluctantly removing the tropical plants from the Walled Garden for safekeeping during the cold weather. The fallen caramel-scented katsura leaves have inaugurated the autumnal loss of leaves, but the Palisades is now approaching its peak colors. Untermyer Gardens is opposite the highest point of the Palisades (about 300 feet high), so the view is majestic indeed. By next year, the foreground in the photograph below will be enriched with beautiful plants and a new pavement pattern.
