If you are within reach of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, the wisteria has not, in fact, peaked. These were taken two days ago and today might be It. The sun is out after a week of soaking, English rain.
These were at the entrance to the rose garden where a spicily scented single yellow rose has opened.
With well-trimmed yew hedges at their feet, two banks of wisteria flank the steps down to the lilac garden.
The air was mauve with wisteria perfume.
If you enter from the Eastern Boulevard gates, it is the series of wisterias on pergolas that were not fully open yet.
