Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens,
Just in time, all of our tropical plants were moved to the municipal greenhouse; shortly thereafter we had a killing freeze, so the garden is moving inexorably to dormancy. Soon the canals and fountains will be drained, and we can reflect on and be thankful for a glorious growing season. Despite the tumult of this year, Mother Nature, aided by our devoted team of gardeners, has given us the priceless gift of beauty and peace.
As the garden winds down for the season, certain unsung plants achieve more prominence. I enjoy the range of textures and colors of our various grasses that are so charmingly animated by the breezes.
Here is Timothy, with a new video about our conifers.
