Afternoon at Pelham

Last Friday we went to Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, New York in the afternoon and had a 3 mile hike around Hunter Island. The views are lovely, but it was hot and buggy. After that we drove to the Lobster Shack on City Island to buy a take out. While parked off the road in a driveway a crew cab pickup truck scraped the paint off the edge of our side mirror. The list of mishaps grows long for our little VW Jetta “James”. We’ve only had it a couple of months.

NYBG Flowers

The greenhouse had a chrysanthemum exhibit. Even though the Conservatory was partially closed there was plenty of flowers to photograph in the garden.

NYBG Landscapes

The second post of four on the New York Botanical Garden. I had such a good day and a lot of pictures came out well. It was hard to choose what to show.

There were canoes in the Bronx River. I asked one of the canoeists about it and he said they were offering free trips on honor of Native Americans.
