The Leonard J. Buck Garden in Far Hills, near the Bernards Township border, will welcome the coming of Spring by hosting the annual Art & Photography Exhibit focusing on the beauty of the diverse moods and seasons of Leonard J. Buck Garden between Feb. 23 to March 13.

The exhibit will be open in the Buck Garden Visitor's Center at 11 Layton Road, Far Hills, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays through Friday. Admission is free.

The works on display will feature the Leonard J. Buck Garden, part of the Somerset County Parks Commission, as seen through the eyes of a wide range of talented individuals, from dedicated hobbyists to working professionals. The photographs and paintings show the garden from many perspectives including sweeping landscape views to portraits of individual flowers. Twenty-five artists and/or photographers contributed to previous annual exhibits.

Leonard J. Buck Garden is considered one of the premier rock gardens in the eastern United States consisting of a 13-acre alpine and woodland garden situated in the wooded stream valley. The garden contains a series of planted rock outcroppings, planting beds, a fern garden, and glimmering ponds and streams. Tucked among the rocks are rare and exotic rock garden plants. The wooded trails connecting the outcroppings are lined withl wild flowers that have flourished and multiplied through the years.
