Once again, Vivian and Ed Merrin are sponsoring The New York Botanical Garden's Waterlily Concert Series. This year's series, which will have a Spanish theme as part of the Garden's current exhibition Spanish Paradise: Gardens of the Alhambra, will be held on the evenings of August 4, 11, and 18.

The waterlilies and lotus collection (in the conservatory courtyard) and Spanish Paradise (in the conservatory) are on view from 6 – 7 p.m., and the concerts on the conservatory lawn begin at 7 p.m.

Visit the NYBG's official website for more information about the Waterlily Concert Series, or for directions to the venue.

Ed Merrin will hold a book signing of "Perfection of the Finite", his book on flower arrangements at each of the three concerts. All of the profits will go to the New York Botanic Gardens, the publisher.

"We hope that you will be able to join us for one or all of these wonderful evenings at The New York Botanical Garden," — Ed Merrin.
