Flowers of all shapes and colors return to the garden this season

April 27, 2022

As the spring season approaches, the transition from the dead trees and lack of flowers to the plethora of green and pink leaves and a colorful array of flowers of all kinds begin to appear. After a long and treacherous winter, strolling along the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) on a sunny day is much needed.

The NYBG — located at 2900 Southern Blvd., across the street from Fordham University’s Rose Hill campus — first opened its doors in 1897. It houses about 250 acres of plants ranging from locally in New York to exotic plants from all over the world. It is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Take part in the return of this rejuvenating season by viewing the pictures taken by a member of The Observer’s multimedia team.
