Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens,
This is the time of year when the juices really start flowing. A moment of great joy is when all the fountains (at the Walled Garden, the Temple of Love, the Rock and Stream Garden, and the Ruin Garden) are turned on. I am happy to announce that this will take place tomorrow, April 9. This reminds me of my college glee club days when we sang Haydn’s The Creation. Its most dramatic moment is the creation of light: "Und…Es…Ward…Licht!" For us in Yonkers, it is "Und Es Ward Wasser!"
Early April means it's daffodil season. A ton of them are now blooming on Daffodil Hill, below the Temple of Love arbor.
