Shakespeare as a Park (as well as in the Park)

I took a very nice walk in the middle of autumn through Central Park. Rather than start at the beginning with familiar areas I have covered in the past on this blog, I figured let’s start with the middle and a look at the Shakespeare Garden. Located between Belvedere Castle and the Delacorte Theater, it is a lovely addition with many creative benches and numerous flowers. As this was late autumn, the flowers were pretty much done, but you still get an idea of what it would look like. Clearly I will have to go back when it’s in full bloom.

The garden is filled with plants and flowers mentioned in Shakespeare pieces, cobble stone walkways, wooden benches, sundials, and intricately designed wooden railings.

Next week: Autumn in the southern half of Central Park.

On another note, prints are on sale right now for the holidays at currently reduced prices. Calendars are available now as well, but after this week may not make it on time for Christmas without ordering faster shipping (which effects the cost). You can find more info here.
