Gardens: Shakespeare Gardens (New York City)

A subtle plaque set into a stone marks the entrance to the garden.

I have finally emerged from under the mountain of digital photos from my June trip to Canada and the US. In an earlier post, I showed you the Shakespeare Garden in Stratford (Canada), and here are photos from the one in Central Park, New York City. I was pleased to see that the Central Park garden does indeed have quotations linking plants to plays, which I thought was sadly lacking in Stratford.

“Shakespeare Garden is a four-acre landscape named for the famed English poet and playwright. The garden features flowers and plants mentioned in his poems and plays. Small bronze plaques scattered throughout the garden bear quotes from the Bard.” (source: centralparknyc.org)
