A Return to the NYBG

When a thing is wick, it has a life about it.
Maybe not a life like you and me...
But somewhere there's a secret streak of green inside it.
Now, come and let me show you what I mean...

{The Secret Garden -- Wick}

Mom and I finally made it back to our beloved New York Botanical Gardens over the weekend. The weather was spectacular and the grounds perfect for social distancing. They made many paths one way and the conservatory is closed, but there are still acres and acres to stroll and enjoy.

The gardens were bursting with beauty, too. As always, I feel like I saw plants I'd never seen before! It just felt so good to be in one of my favorite NY places - the first time since November. Possibly the longest I've gone between visits in 13 years, crazy. 

I will be making many trips there in the coming months. Taking advantage of this heaven on earth being in my backyard to watch the seasons truly change before my eyes.

If these are the ones in Brooklyn, this is where we saw the Chilhuly glass and I have very good memories of that. I'm so glad you were able to get back to them.
