In Montclair, New Jersey there is a place I call The Secret Garden. It is tucked away behind the United Way building, next door to the town library. 

It is a lovely garden that is beautifully maintained by the Garden Club of Montclair. They are especially well known for the tulips in May. The town flower in Montclair is the tulip, and the entire town celebrates May in Montclair. 

This year, I visited in May and June. In May I had just missed most of the tulips (I was away), but I found these.

Then I went back in June and the roses were out:

  1. Oh so pretty. I'm a sucker for gardens and all flowers. I like secret garden spots like this. I always wondered why they called it the garden state. :)

    1. I love gardens, too. New Jersey has many pretty gardens!
