Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens,
I try to have a finger in every pie at Untermyer Gardens, so it was a pleasant surprise to discover an unexpected improvement initiated by our gardeners. Led by Maryam Farzaneh, they have planted the rocky edging of the stone stairs leading to the lowest Color Garden with a rainbow of succulent plants. I had never noticed that the rocks were actually laid out to be planters, but our creative gardeners were way ahead of me—bravo!
