sunday in the park

As you enter the Central Park Conservatory Gardens at Fifth Avenue & 105th St
an Italian-style garden opens immediately before you.

It is bordered to the north and south by alle├ęs of crabapple trees.

On the west side is a wrought-iron wisteria pergola
that sits atop a series of tiered yew and spiraea hedges.


This is a shot of the top of the pergola
(fancy word for a garden feature
forming a shaded walk
or passageway of pillars
that support cross beams
&
a sturdy open lattice,
upon which
woody vines are grown)


Reminds me of a Maxfield Parrish painting
