A walk in the past


The Brooklyn Botanical Garden

Yesterday I walked in Shakespeare’s garden, sat on a tranquil pond in a Japanese Teahouse, saw one of the largest living collection of rosebush species and that was before I entered greenhouses that let me view the marvel of the Bonsai and then took me to the Tropics, the Desert and the Rainforest.  Voices in many languages blended with the lush greenness.

I came here many Sundays as a child. I was on 52 quiet acres in Brooklyn, a green oasis.  What a peaceable way to find refreshment.
