The girls had a couple days off from school last week. We couldn’t stay in because of the renovations so I had to find some sort of activity for them. On Friday, I suggested the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and they agreed. I put my macro lens on my camera and we headed out. I didn’t expect so many flowers to be in bloom. It was the first day of Fall but it felt like Summer and it looked like Spring! Except for the fact that the cherry trees and magnolias weren’t in bloom… (I am clearly not a botanist.)
I ended up taking over 200 pictures. I’ll have to spread the good ones out over 2-3 weeks otherwise this post would be massive. (Also, I don’t have the energy to edit that many pictures at once. Not a fan of editing.)
V absolutely wanted to check out the fish pond and I wanted to see the rose garden. Guess what we saw first? E had her kids’ map and told us where to go. It felt like seeing myself at that age.
The girls spent some time sketching in the Shakespeare garden. Not what they saw. I took tons of pictures there. The flowers were so beautiful and the bees and butterflies were very busy. (Bees and butterflies will have their own post. Mostly because I can’t choose my favorite.)
Final stop in the rose garden. I had to hurry because two children were suddenly very tired.
They then stopped to sketch some more before we left. We were reminded of how much we enjoy this place. We may need a membership.
