Garden Party

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Over the holiday weekend  I went to the New York Botanical Garden to take my sister Virgie’s “save the date”/engagement  photos.  As a native New Yorker I’m ashamed to admit this was my first time visiting the gardens.  The NY Botanical Gardens is a serene oasis in the middle of the Bronx.  While walking through the garden you completely forget you are in urban city.  I was so taken with the gardens and all it’s beauty.  Since I was already using  it’s lush background for my sister’s pictures, I decided to do the same!

If you are ever in NYC definitely head uptown and visit the beautiful NY Botanical Garden.  I promise you will not be disappointed.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day!

    I am such a fan of botanical gardens that I always try to see if a city has one when I am visiting so I can stop in. My favourite is Kirstenbosch in Cape Town.
