    Do you know how the Bronx got it's name?

    The Bronk family had a farm there...people would say they are going to the Bronk's...somewhere the 's turned into x after the British took over from the Dutch
    (just filled with trivia here, LOL)
    Well I was born in the Bronx and never knew this place was there, nor did I know about the Bronk's. Thanks Laurent and Ron you've made an old Bronxite proud!

    Wonderful place, I want to come visit it looks so tranquil, Those big leaves you have a picture of are amazing the photo looks like a painting, I love nature and plants, hence getting addicted to our hobby LOL Considering I couldnt used to keep an african violet from dying all you guys have been teaching me well, though I have a whole lot more to learn LOL I so love going on trips with people, especially when the weather is as lovely as that.

    Well there weren't a lot of people that day ... which was great.
    But also it is a lesser known NYC garden, during a weekday and I purposefully tried to not have anyone in the frames whenever possible!

    I've never seen this place either, even though I'm a native Noo Yawka!!

    It's absolutely beautiful, and will have to go on my list of places to visit on my next journey up north.

    Laurent, thank you so much for sharing such a lovely place with us.
