South of the Cloisters: Flower and Stone

We continue on our walk through Ft Tryon Park by walking back into Heather Garden. Then we take a look at Linden Terrace which concludes the trip. It was a short one, which was due to the purpose of the visit – seeing the arches. Everything else was just a bonus. Linden Terrace is a popular spot for weddings due to it’s views and shelter from the harsh sunlight.

Lots of sunlight to bring out the colors. There is very little cover in this garden.
