Rose At Clark Gardens
FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
Photograph of a beautiful rose in full bloom at Clark Gardens located in Albertson, Long Island, NY. Photograph was taken in June on Father's Day while taking a nice walk through Clark Gardens with my daughters to celebrate Father's Day together. Faded out the background so the viewer's concentration would be on the rose. In addition, zoomed in on the rose to capture the detail in the pedals and the gorgeous color. The Clark Botanic Garden (12 acres) is a botanical garden located on Long Island at 193 I. U. Willets Rd, Albertson, New York. It is open to the public 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily but closed winter weekends; a voluntary donation is requested.
The garden was established in 1969 on the former estate of Grenville Clark, a noted attorney, author, and advisor to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. In 1966, Clark donated his home to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The site now contains approximately 5,000 species of plants, with over 1,000 labeled trees, shrubs, and garden plants arranged in 12 specialty gardens. Collections include native wildflowers, conifers, roses, perennials, daylilies, wetland plants, rock garden plants, herbs, butterfly plants, and medicinal plants.
During the summer months free compost is available to local residents.
