I love flowers. So it isn't surprising that I decided to visit the New York Botanical gardens during my trip to the city last week. A lot of people find inspiration in different things. Nature is one of those things for me. So I took off and headed to the gardens. For reference, there is a railway train that only takes 20 minutes to get to the gardens from Grand Central. I made a mistake and took the subway to the opposite side of the park so I ended up needing to walk through a forest to reach the conservatory where the exhibition was.
Since it is still early in the season the grounds aren't in bloom yet but as I walked through I could tell they would be beautiful in the summer. I was also the only one walking around which ended up making the journey a relatively peaceful one.
The conservative was large and beautiful. I used my phone to capture pictures due to the humidity inside.
Finally the Flowers
The exhibition on right now was the orchard show, but the regular exhibits were still there as well.
The different varieties of flowers were beautiful and the grounds are large and a nice escape from the city. If you are in New Yrok I would definitely recommend visiting the NY botanical gardens.
