Summer at the New York Botanical Garden

I spent a couple of restorative hours wandering around the NYBG yesterday enjoying the tranquility and calm that the space and greenery provide.

I love the plantings along the Seasonal Walk and the Perennial and Herb gardens outside the Conservatory. Whoever designs these plantings has a wonderful eye for colour and texture.

However, it was terribly humid, so an idea for a new permanent exhibition sprung into my mind: plants of the sub-Antarctic and sub-Arctic and at the end of the exhibit, an ice bar selling vodka & frozen cocktails. I know I’m biased, but I think this would be a real crowd-pleaser.
