Recently we headed to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to enjoy the spring flowers, much like we did last year when we were first in New York.
It was a nice sunny day after having rain a day earlier. The grass was a little wet and not exactly picnic material, but the gardens were lovely to look around and I think we saw some sections that we didn’t see last year.
Tate had a good time chasing a rabbit that was frolicking in the grass and trees. Unfortunately he was a frisky little thing and Tate wasn’t able to get too close nor I get a photo of it.
We stopped at a fountain where people throw coins. Tate was eager to throw in quite a few coins, while I was busy trying to get some good shots.
The cherry blossoms were out when we were there, so we enjoyed having a look at them and having a quick photo session on the grass. Although Tate and Knox did end up a bit wet afterwards!
The Japanese Gardens were quite busy and popular. Given Tate was incredibly hungry we only did a quick loop around the pond and sat down so he could have a snack.
Like last year, a highlight was going in to the conservatory and checking out the Bonsai and such. It was amazing to see just how old some of the Bonsai were. There was at least one that was over a hundred years old!
