Yesterday I was treated to a tour of Greenwood Gardens – 28 acres of private gardens in Short Hills, NJ (35 minutes from Manhattan). It is on the National Registry of Historic Places and is significant for its beauty, history and design.
|While it looks much like a Carnation it is actually a type of Rose|
|Century old rock walls and pots|
|Featured statues, carvings, cement and tiled gazebos abound|
The gardens are centuries old and were originally part of an estate. In 2003 the owners donated it to the public. Through grants and private funding the entire place is undergoing a transformation to revitalize the gardens, preserve them for future generations and become a vibrant cultural center for the New York Metropolitan area.

|I didn’t find out what type of plant this is, but it sure is beautiful|
|Once a multi level water fall and pond.|
|My Colleagues and friends|
|A variety of Hydrangea|
