It was a little too breezy yesterday at Schenectady’s Central Park Rose Garden for a quick photoshoot. You had to wait for the rose bushes to calm down. And, that was good: The required patience meant enjoying the flowers and the entire scene more thoroughly than I could do just looking through a camera lens and shooting. And, did I mention there was a lovely blue sky and puffy white clouds that were just about perfect for the first day of Sumer?

There were quite a few lovers of summer beauty of all ages enjoying the award-winning Rose Garden.

  • The Rose Garden is located at the Park’s main entrance, Wright Avenue and Central Parkway. Learn more about its history and projects at the Rose Garden’s Website and see featured flowers plus current events on its Facebook Page.
