We are seizing the last of summer by enjoying the outdoors as much as we can. We can’t possibly bank on this coming winter being as mild as last winter, so we are getting in as much park and garden time as we can. Somehow in all my years of living in the NYC area I never quite made it up into the Bronx to see this spectacular riverside garden. You know you’ve found nirvana when you turn the corner to enter the garden and – greeted with the cliff views on the Hudson – Ezra shouted ‘whoa!..this is AWESOME!’
I do love that gardens please him as much as cars do.
We went on a perfect Sunday while a bee information and honey harvesting day was in full swing. With friends Lea and Mia, the kids got to dress up like little bees and then march in a bee parade with kazoos in hand. They were able to check out a hive and look for the queen bee, then taste the different honeys from different seasons. Later we wandered around and found a path of gourds hanging overhead, and an amazing pond of giant lily pads.
They have a fun fall lineup that will definitely get us back there for more.
This is the view that had Ezra in awe (and click here for the fall folliage version):
