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~!
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.
We started by strolling through the Wetlands section (looking very different in early December than our wetlands here in south Florida, of course!) Soon, 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. Who would have guessed we were in New York City!? We passed rushing streams and waterfalls as we hiked further along the trails.
It was a crisp but lovely Fall day, perfect for spending some quiet time outdoors in the northeast again, after living in Florida for a year!
Lovely imagery! Love the sunset, the autumn leaves spread out on the ground, the wonderful tones and contrasts of each photo.
Thank you Lorri – you are so kind! It was really a lovely way to spend the day, especially after not really experiencing those beautiful aspects of autumn down in Florida.
