The final part of our trip to the NY Botanical Garden involved us walking around the gardens and seeing various parts of it in bloom. I FINALLY got to see the rock garden. Then we walked around the Thain Family Forest, found some cherry blossoms just north of the waterfall, and then walked back around through the lilacs, crabapples, and azalea gardens. It was a little chilly out, so there weren’t many people about. Made for a nice quiet walk.

I always like looking at this cottage.
