Pelham Bay Park

We hiked for a couple of miles on Hunter Island in Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, New York. It’s a nice place to take a walk. These were shot with our Samsung Galaxy phones.

Arthur Avenue Door

When we visit the New York Botanical Gardens I like to eat a late lunch at Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. It is an Italian district with many restaurants and stores. I buy bread, cheeses and meats to take home. This old door is is in the interior of one of the restaurants there. We ate there in April of 2022. For Thursday Doors 8/25/2022.

Cherries at NYBG

Spring is early. The magnolias are finished but the cherries were not. Sunday at the New York Botanical Garden in, Bronx, New York, April 10, 2022.

After visiting the garden we ate Italian food at a restaurant on Arthur Avenue. I enjoy doing that after spending time outdoors and working up an appetite.

Strange NYBG

Now that it is Spring we will be going outdoors more. Here are a few edited photographs from our trip to the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx on Members Day Sunday, April 10, 2022.

Orchids and Other

A mix of plants that I photographed while visiting the NY Botanical Gardens.

Yellow Orchids

Yellow to greenish orchids work well on gray or a dark background.

White Orchids

White and pale cream colored orchids. One hallway in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is all white orchids.

Pink Orchids

There is a lovely variety of patterns and shades of pink in the orchid show. I like to tone down bright green. This allows the colors in the flowers to take center stage.
