Back to the Gardens - Brooklyn

A boulder deposited by a glacier during the last glaciation. The terminal glacial moraine stopped at a point mid-way through what is now the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens between 13,000 and 15,000 years ago. Geologically speaking, the blink of an eye.

The Brooklyn Museum through a veil of trees.

One of the fantastic lawns at the Gardens. Good for kids and grown-ups, too. Come as you are.

The cherry blossoms are in bloom!

A London Plane tree enjoying the Spring.

The goldfish looking swimmingly at the Japanese Garden...

...and the turtles are sunning themselves properly.

Are robins getting bigger, or is it just my imagination?

There is indeed a mockingbird sitting in the leaves and brush.

This mockingbird, in fact.

A beautiful flower whose name I entirely forget, but whose grace is a gift to the daylight. Ah... Wisteria!
