After looking gray for the weeks since Winter Village load-out, the park is due for a dose of color. First came this weekend's lawn roll-out, followed by this week's horticulture installations. These plant buds in the park prove that, despite this week's cold temperatures, spring is fast approaching.
|Approximately 1200 pots of blue pansies will find a home in planters and beds around the park.|
|The 200 pots of pink pansies stand out against vibrant green leaves.|
|Daffodils are just a week away from blooming, weather-depending.|
|Even our rhododendrons, left over from the Winter Village display, are budding. |
|The orange queen tulips on the 42nd Street side of the park, near the library, are sprouting quickly.|
|Leaf buds cling to the London Plane limbs; expect them to arrive by the end of April.|
