Spring Has Sprung! April Blooms on the High Line

With all the plants in bloom right now on the High Line, it's hard to believe there was ever a period of dormancy. From the redbud's bold lipstick-shaped blooms, to the dainty, sunshine-colored miniature daffodils, the whole park is beginning to take on a renewed feeling of wildness.

Earlier this month, the unseasonably warm weather encouraged some of the High Line's plants to bloom earlier than expected, and the forecasted rainfall will surely give the leafy plants a fresh, lush green. As the weather continues to change, expect to see even more blooms.
