One of the prettiest places in New York City is the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. It's just a short -- 45 minute -- subway ride from where I live, but it's a world away.
It's right around the corner from the Brooklyn Museum, which has a terrific art collection.
I was at the Botanical Gardens on Thursday for a program for work. The program went well, but I wished I could stay here for the rest of the day and enjoy the gardens, especially the lily pools, and the Museum. Definitely need a return trip soon!
It's been a whirlwind few days...Retirement party and dinner for my new volunteer program -- details to follow -- on Friday night, training for the program yesterday and a movie this afternoon with my friend Lynda. All good, but hectic. Bog visits tonight!
