NY Botanical Gardens - Spring 09

The NY Botanical Garden was our "Staycation" version of watching Spring bloom. Right next to the Bronx Zoo, this is a relaxed but huge area - with, as you can guess, plants in and out of bloom. We missed the Tulip show - due to start in another 15 days - and went with a general tour of the place. The tropical rainforest and the desert vegetation were impressive and interesting. Presentation is, as with most things in the US, absolutely great.
