Sonnets and Flowers

Shakespeare Garden, a speciality garden located within Brooklyn Botanic Garden in an English cottage garden informal layout, is the perfect place to spend a summer afternoon reminiscing the quirky from Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. The  Garden is a gift by Henry Clay Folger, founder of Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington D.C.

The 52 acre Brooklyn Botanic Garden or BBG in the Prospect Park neighbourhood of Brooklyn, New York City, has other flowery attractions including a Japanese Garden, themed mini gardens, conservatory, museum and an art gallery. (I had visited the Garden in 2011)

Blooms of all varieties…….I missed clicking the Rose. The other flowers compensated  because as Shakespeare rightly said…. ‘ What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet’.  from Romeo and Juliet.
