A visit to the High Line on July 20

last year

For those of you unfamilar with the High Line, twenty years ago, a group of people had the idea to turn an abandoned elevated freight train track into a garden in NYC. It took a tremendous amount of work but that plan came to fruition.


Today the High Line contains hundreds of trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses and bulbs, many native to the area. It also has changing sculptures, an area to buy food, observation points including an area that has a view down part of Manhattan and a water feature where you can did your toes in a running "stream" .


I took a bunch of pictures which are posted below including current artworks. I could have taken a thousand photos and it still would not have captured all of the amazing diversity of plants.

Scabiosa never overwinters for me, so I'm impressed that theirs does.

This hosta was enormous





This prickly pear is native to the area which blew my mind





This persicaria is beautiful but seeds too much for me to consider it
