I was in Brooklyn about two months ago and stopped by the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens (here). To know me is to understand that I love a good garden. The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens did not disappoint. The 52 acre garden was founded more than a century ago. The grounds are beautiful with a layout perfect for exploring. I think it would take at least a day to see the entire garden. I really liked all the spaces they carved out with benches where you could sit and read or just relax and take in the beauty of your surroundings. If you find yourself in Brooklyn I would add the Botanical Gardens to your list of things to see. Check the hours before going. The month I was there admission was free before 12pm on Friday.
I love cities with tons of communal green spaces. Where I live the parks are few and far between. The green spaces we do have eventually get bought out by developers who want to build more McMansions but that’s a topic for another day. For now I’ll just leave you with some lovely flowers to brighten up your week.
Thanks for stopping by!
