NYBG Trees and Nature

We took two friends with us to the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx on Thursday, May 6. It was a glorious spring day. We covered the entire garden. After the garden we ate an Italian meal near Arthur Avenue. There are enough pictures to spread over 4 days.

Sterling Forest

After visiting Skylands and stopping at a diner for lunch we drove to Sterling Forest, Orange County, New York. We did half the blue trail around the lake. I included a bad photograph of some Common Mergansers because I so rarely see them. I didn’t look for the Golden-winged Warbler.


The New Jersey Botanical Gardens at Skylands has a mansion and formal gardens. It is in Passaic County. I like going there because it is lovely and an easy place to walk around and it is very pretty.
