The glorious month of May has arrived and QBG is bustling with blooms and activities!
The Kaltman Fragrance Walk’s lilacs are covered in heavenly scented blooms, while the Rose Garden is full of flower buds just about to open. The Woodland Garden’s trees have all leafed out, and shade-loving wildflowers like Solomon’s seal and bleeding hearts decorate the garden paths. Watch for other floral beauties around QBG like lupines, California poppies and bearded iris.
Enjoy a walk through our bucolic 39 acres and be sure to take part in the great activities planned this month – the Children’s Activity Table on Saturdays and Sundays (sponsored by TD Bank), discounted admission as part of National Public Gardens Day (May 11) and New York State Museums Week (starting May 31), plus a Native Plant Tour for NYC Wildflower Week (May 19).
And don’t miss the last weeks of photographer Audrey Gottlieb’s show “Vignettes from the Queens Project” and the artist’s talk also on the 19th.
Folks from the terrific NYC Compost Project in Queens are also busy – catch them at QBG on May 5 at Mama’s Expo, at QBG for a Composting Workshop in Mandarin (May 5), and on May 6 at the Green for Queens Earth Day Fair at the Central YM&YWHA.
Get all the details on our Events Calendar.
Remember Mother’s Day is May 13 and QBG is the perfect place to bring Mom for a relaxing afternoon. Even better, give her a gift that will last all year – membership to QBG!
P.S. We had a great time at Arbor Fest on April 29 and thank all for visiting! Check out the photos on the Arbor Fest Photo Gallery.
