  1. That looks a beautiful space and it looks well used and well loved too. And maybe I should let my lettuce flower more, so pretty!! (but probably not so tasty) xx

  2. I have just flicked through the pictures, Annie and the place looks amazing. I’ll have a proper read later but I have some new chickens to settle in right now (as you do).

  3. I love how so much is explained and the gardens lends itself to learning and development. It all looks so calming except when you see the security guard!

  4. Ah how lovely, particularly the childrens garden and discovery garden. I wish we had more like that here – there is a community garden near by which is quite nice in the summer but its not particularly aimed at children, although I think they have the occasional children’s workshop. 🙂

  5. I love the feel of this place from your photos, the glasshouse is just gorgeous to look at. And how brilliant that there’s a real focus on children, I’m with you on needing more of that in the UK. I’d love to spend a day here with my kids, we’d get completely carried away!

  6. What a cool place! The collection drawers sound fab, I bet there are all sorts of garden treasures in there. Can’t beat a glasshouse – another thing I’ve like to stuff in my dream garden one day (the list is getting rather long). I went for a walk yesterday and noticed the first orange and brown leaves on the ground. Autumn is a-coming! Pleased I got myself organised to join in this week, I’ve missed it over the last couple of weeks.

  7. This has just found its way onto my must-do list for the next time I make it to New York (I’ve only managed one trip so far, and did the Art Galleries!). So beautiful, and I love that they have such a focus on children. Hope you survived the heat, it was brutal last week, the kids schools have no AC, they were a mess by the end of the day, poor things! Lovely to be joining in again, with a look back at our summer, hope to join in more often now that I have child free mornings to explore…

  8. To think I lived in New York as a young journalist for a couple of years and never visited! (I did though have a rare rooftop garden) Definitely will have to explore the Botanic Gardens next time I’m in the Big Apple. Beautiful captures – love checking out the camera’s settings too.

  9. We coped just about though I was very red faced and flustered! It rained mid week and that freshened the rest of the week up a bit for us, though it was still in the 30s. We did the Met too – flipping lovely there, generally the whole area is just brilliant. Your poor kiddos, I bet they were melting by the time they got home!

  10. Firstly, thank you for linking me in, I scheduled my post as I’m away in Wales where there never seems to be a 3G connection and only one place on site to escape to get WiFi. Thank you 🙂

    This has filled me with excitement to go to New York as I went many years ago and really did not make the most of it, plus I was young and daft. I agree horticulture should be on curriculum’s, such a shame that most schools do little by way of it at all. I regularly ask my stepsons and they tell me they learn nothing about plants or veggies and growing. Pity.

    Looks like Brooklyn Botanic garden have it well sussed, what amazing ideas they have for igniting the gardening passion in children. Beautiful pictures and love the camera info. xx (can’t wait to catch up with your holiday pics when I get back home)

  12. What an amazing green space, 52 acres in the middle of New York? What a wonderful thing for all the nearby residents. Completely agree about keeping children connected with gardening, nature & growing plants…it’s so important to know how amazing nature is & children love seeing things grow. Thanks again for hosting #HDYGG!

  13. Absolutely stunning – what a fabulous lung for New York to enjoy. Nice labels too, which I always love when I visit botanic gardens as not knowing what a particular plant is drives me mad!

  14. what amazing gardens and so much information and things to do, it’s weird you saying you’d like to see the cherry blossom in the spring as I’m off to South Africa next month for the end of spring and start of the summer and was just discussing that with hubby as I’ve had nothing but summer since this time last year
