Here are some pictures from my April trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I was there for the Cherry Blossom Festival, but alas, the cherry blossoms were not as luxurious as usual. But a day amongst the flowers is always better than a day doing anything else.
I love flowers. Can’t grow them, but love to look at them. So, every year I attend the New York Botanic Garden Orchid Show. When I began going, it was a family event: the husband and the daughter included. Time passes, and now it’s just husband and me. It’s bittersweet, because my Daughter has a whole life of her own (which is great) but I miss those little moments.
I’ve been attending the orchid show almost since its inception 16 years ago. Though always beautiful, I don’t think this years show is as pretty as past shows. My husband always makes the same joke every year: he says, “Didn’t we see this flower last year?” I smile and snap another 300 pictures.
Today is a wet, cold day in NYC. School is closed due to threat of impending Nor’easter, though no snow is to be had quite yet. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
And no- I have no idea what any of these flowers are called. I just think they’re pretty!
