Spring at the NYBG: a pictorial post

As I've mentioned here before, we love the New York Botanical Garden. We became members two years ago and visit every few months; there's always something new in bloom, and there are excellent activities for the Littleboys in the children's garden and elsewhere, from nature trails to seed planting to painting watercolours. (This is not a sponsored post: I really do recommend it).

Spring was late in New York this year, but once it comes, it comes with a vengeance In the last month, we've been twice; first to see the magnolia and cherry blossom in April, and last weekend to see the azaleas in full bloom, as well as the new, and lovely, Native American Plant garden. If you need a bit of colour to brighten up your day (and I know I do), here is just a taster of what we saw. And see if you can spot the Littleboys hiding, Where's Wally-like, in one of these pictures...

Very beautiful indeed...it makes such a difference when the blossom arrives...and I found them in one of the pictures...the easy one!

Beautiful.

I'm going to use your blog as a "what to do with children in New York" guide. The littlest one is now old enough to stand a weekend being entertained in a city as opposed to a beach/park/resort. I'm looking forward to expanding our horizons again!

Oh my word! The COLOUR! And I especially love the way the colour pops on the green background.
