Wordless Wednesday 04/27/11: Early Spring Flowers, Montclair




One of my favorite "secret" gardens in Montclair, New Jersey is tucked away behind the United Way Building on South Fullerton Avenue, next door to the Montclair Public Library. The Avis Campbell Gardens are"designed and maintained by the Garden Club of Montclair."

The types of flowers found here in the spring and summer vary as the seasons change. Montclair's town flower is the tulip, so many of the early flowers are tulips. In May, the town goes mad for tulips! Fortunately those are probably my favorite flowers. They are all over town! Montclair is starting to look like a mini-Holland.

Perhaps someone viewing these photos will know what some of the non-tulip flowers are.


These photos were all taken on Tuesday, April 26th, 2011, in the back and the front of the Avis Campbell Gardens. Enjoy!

  9. I'm stunned! The array of colours is fantastic. Boy you really have a spring explosion there. We are just starting on the wildflowers, but it will be weeks before the tulips, daffodils and blossoms make an appearance.
