From the Rock Garden in Elizabeth Park, I am looking into the Perennial Garden. The central feature of the Perennial Garden is a stately gazebo, a favorite spot for summer weddings and other gatherings. It is too early for many of the perennials to emerge from their winter rest, so I will return later.
The tree on the right is a Pyramidal European Hornbeam. I know this only because I took a tree identification tour of the park on Saturday, which I featured yesterday. We were told that this tree has a much more spreading habit than is normal, showing the benefit of having planted it in a place with plenty of room. Isn't it graceful?
