The sun was shining earlier today but the snow is still up to our knees, so there was not a remote possibility of enjoying a walk around the garden. So, off we went to the New York Botanical Gardens where they shovel or plow the paths and you can still enjoy some beautiful Winter scenes in the garden.
Entering another world, a rain forest or secret Caribbean place and the rich moistness almost made photo taking impossible; the thickness of it adhering to the camera lens.
I will share just a few snapshots of this acreage under glass, so that you will want to go yourself and see all that is there. Next month the orchids will arrive and the throngs will fill (overfill!) the space. So now is a wonderful time to have the place more or less to yourself compared to the three deep you sometimes experience during a popular show.
The tropical feel is not the only draw; you can also enter the desert in this magnificent garden under glass.
