What’s Beautiful Now: Sun & Verse

Posted in Programs and Events on June 24 2016, by Matt Newman

Rockefeller Rose GardenIt’s the first week of summer, and NYBG‘s 250 acres have filled in to create a verdant backdrop of petals and greenery, a living painting that invites you to explore its trails and collections. With the sun high and warm, the dappled shade of the Forest is that much more poetic. But if you love true verse, we’ve got something a bit more literal for you to take advantage of this weekend.

While Impressionism: American Gardens on Canvas continues throughout the Garden, Sophie Cabot Black will be joining us on Sunday for a special reading that should be the icing on the cake for our summer of paintings and poems. You can join her in the Perennial Garden at 2 p.m. that day to sit and enjoy. For more events and activities, visit our full calendar.

From the Rose Garden to the daylilies, the warmer months are really coming into their own. But if you’ve been outside in New York lately, you probably don’t need much convincing to realize how beautiful this season can be. Come enjoy it in the best possible place!
