Schenectady’s Central Park Rose Garden is overflowing, almost overcrowded, with beauty at full bloom in mid-summer. But, I discovered yesterday (Sunday, September 20, 2020) that a late-summer visit to the Garden has special charms and beauty of its own. Remaining blooms seem more special and the ornamental grasses are better able to shine. This posting has images taken yesterday that I hope justify my enthusiasm.
