But first we must have a story. When I was a kid, my mother would take me to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden because she loves flowers and plants and other nonesuch. Now admittedly I enjoyed seeing a venus flytrap but overall, I couldn’t understand why people wanted to spend an afternoon among these types of things. Plants don’t talk and you can’t really play with them.
Now I am older, but probably not wiser, but I do realize that those types of places serve their purpose. They are peaceful, lovely places to spend time with your thoughts.
And of course, take photos:
