Still Learning To See

Still high on the High Line

Back in Vermont to more unbelievably gorgeous weather. I find one of the best things about traveling is returning home. Perhaps second best is having memories of where I just visited. The High Line was right near the top of the list of things Liz and I did in NYC. Here are a few of the plants that are in bloom.

The plantings are just plain genius. I’m not sure what plant it is, but, WOW, it is fabulous.

Sweet black-eyed susan (Rudbeckia subtomentosa), so lovely on a sunny fall day.

This variety of aster (Raydon’s Favorite aromatic aster, Aster ‘Raydon’s Favorite’) was one I’m not familiar with. The bees loved it!

Grasses of various types are an essential part of the planting.

This form of Cutleaf sumac defies description when backlit by the sun.

The contrast among the plants used was fascinating. Again, I’m not sure what I was photographing in this case but then what is in a name anyway?!
