The Bayard Arboretum in Great River has many beautiful flower beds. Here are some photos from the dahlia garden. This garden is planted each year, and maintained by the members of the Long Island Dahlia Society. It’s really magnificent this time of year. All of the flowers are vibrant, and boisterous. Look at the bee that stood still for a photograph on one of the dahlias!
The Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River, NY is a great place to visit. They have a garden strictly for dahlias which is lovely. You can see more of that here. It is about 600 acres of natural beauty, full of well maintained paths. It is such a scenic place that is great for taking photographs. The water was at high tide when these photos were taken.
