More spring blooms appear on Governors Island


As springtime continues, blooms on Governors Island show no sign of slowing down! Since the Island is closed, we present some of our most brilliant recent blooms here in lieu of seeing them in person. Last year, our Horticulture team planted a variety of bulbs in beds across the Island. Now, these gorgeous flowers have finally arrived. A selection of multicolored tulips brighten the outside of Building 108 above. See more below and some of our earlier blooms here.
