Woodsy hike at the New York Botanical Garden

We were visiting our daughter in New York for Thanksgiving, and she suggested we take the subway up to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.  What a serene and beautiful place~!IMG_8469

The Garden’s 250 acres are varied and beautifully kept, and there are many special exhibits and collections on the grounds.  Definitely a place worth returning to at all seasons of the year.

IMG_8446We started by strolling through the Wetlands section (looking very different in early December than our wetlands here in south Florida, of course!)  IMG_8458Soon, it felt like we were hiking through the woods in upstate New York or New England – the pathways were lined with mostly bare trees and the ground was covered with fallen leaves.  IMG_8471Who would have guessed we were in New York City!?  We passed rushing streams and waterfalls as we hiked further along the trails.
