Botanical Gardens June 9th 2005

“Across 250 exquisite acres, The New York Botanical Garden features 48 gardens and plant collections, a landmark conservatory, and 50 acres of the original...” that is how the description starts for the garden. Traveling to the extreme other end of the D train from my travels to Coney Island I set out to see flowers. The day was hot but perfect for walk amongst the flows and trees. An article in the Wall Street Journal directed me here. "A Dream House of Flowers" a new high tech greenhouse in the Bronx. So I went and the experience was exactly what the doctor ordered—fine and peaceful, a delight of sight and smell.
