On the west side of Manhattan’s Central Park, near 81st Street, sits a four-acre section known as Shakespeare’s Garden, an area with flora that consists exclusively of items either mentioned in Shakespeare’s works or contained within his personal garden in Stratford-upon-Avon. As one might expect, Shakespeare’s Garden in Central Park hosts a rose or two—including this one, photographed September 19, 2014. Higher resolution versions of this photo can be viewed at 500px.com.
Kenn, dang! I have been to Central Park a dozen times and thought I had found every nook and cranny. And now something new?!? We are planning on a trip there after Thanksgiving and if the weather holds, I’ll try to get there…or just leave it to the spring. What a wonderful idea and a great capture!
No matter how much time I spend in Central Park, I’m always finding something that’s new to me—even if it’s not technically “new.” I first discovered this garden back in June of this year. Turns out, it’s been around since 1913, and was most recently restored back in 1987. Go figure! (Click here for more info.) Anyway, I should be back in the city the week of Thanksgiving, too—hoping to discover yet more.
My proudest achievement was finding the John Lennon tribute spot.. it only took me an hour in the area! 🙂
Una Gran Fotografía, Bonito Color Y Un Buen Primer Plano… Un Saludo.
Muchas gracias, mi amigo!
Beautiful photograph, Kenn, and what a gorgeous color.
I believe that what will be our last rose of the season, is just opening now.
Thank you so much, Lisa. I hope your last rose of the season is a beauty. Your last post, “Hidden,” was a masterpiece!
Thank you, Christy!
Thank you, Pat!
