New York Botanical Gardens Outing!

New York Botanical Gardens Outing!

I was born and raised in New York and still live here so naturally I have NOT done a lot of sight seeing! I finally made the time to go to the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. Being across the street from the Bronx Zoo, I can tell you the zoo always won out! Have barely missed a year going there since birth, and that is a LONG time LOL! But, I am so glad I finally went to the #NYBG, it was super awesome and I want to go back!

They had an exhibit of Artworks by world-renowned artist *Dale Chihuly that was just amazing to see. They also had a really fun Halloween Children’s Garden, naturally, my favorite part – LOL. The nature walks were really pretty this time of year and the path to the waterfall was a good hike. (See all of these pictures below)

So, as far as the plants go, although Autumn may not be the optimal time to see the gardens in bloom, it was still fun and I plan on going back in May!

Here are some of the plants I saw and this cute bug! I have never seen one quite like this, do you know what it is?

And of course the Chihuly Exhibit was just amazing… I can’t believe what he can do with glass!

“Dale Chihuly, an American artist, has mastered the translucent and transparent qualities of ice, water, glass, and neon, to create works of art that transform the everyday experience. He is globally renowned for his ambitious site-specific installations in public spaces as well as exhibitions presented in museums and gardens worldwide.”

The children’s area was exceptionally fun because they had a Halloween exhibit!
