Song-osity: Light Beams

These are the days...
...something will grow and bloom in you....
 ...feel a shaft of light make its way across your face...
These are days you'll remember...

My favorite place in NY has to be the NY Botanical Gardens. I feel so at peace there. It's a true oasis in an Urban Jungle. Spending part of a day there makes time stop. The sun streaming through the leaves, the birds chirping, the leaves rustling.

I still remember the first time I visited those gardens. It became a vacation from real life. To this day it's a place of refuge from the busy pace of life. I place to recharge, find myself, spend time with nature.

The seasons may change, the flowers bloom and leaves change, but that light, that light is an amazingly gorgeous constant in one of my favorite places. I remember each visit to this oasis and hold each memory in a special place!

also...going to do a better job at promoting my Monday link-up!

Gorgeous reams of light you captured here! Where in NY are these gardens? Are they the botanical gardens that are in the Bronx? Looks like a wonderful place to wander and get lost in. Thanks for joining in at Song-ography.
