Daffodils Reign At Shakespeare Garden

Garden Club Centennial Daffodils

On Saturday I checked the Shakespeare Garden in Cedar Brook Park and found lots of daffodils, including the very special ones planted in 2010. See the work of the Plainfield Garden Club here.

The Shakespeare Garden in Plainfield is one of several across the world that features flowers mentioned in the Bard's works. The Plainfield Garden Club maintains it in conjunction with Union County parks staff, opening it in Spring and closing in Fall.
This early, various kinds of daffodils dominated the garden.
I also saw Peony shoots coming up, and some small Primroses.
Hellebores were blooming.
More Hellebores.
Had to look this one up - Pulmonaria (Lungwort).
The Shakespeare Garden is on the state Women's Heritage Trail. is a great place to visit or to bring visitors, especially when it is at its peak in early June. The Plainfield Garden Club usually schedules an event the first week in June, with a plant sale, music and guided tours of the garden. Put it on your list of Plainfield highlights!



  1. Indeed a Plainfield gem! Happy Spring Bernice.

  2. When my relatives from Toronto passed through Plainfield for a visit a few years ago, they immediately wanted to see our Shakespeare Garden!
