There is so much to see, feel and smell. We saw spectacular colorful flowers and waterplants in the Tropical Pavilion and we never knew there are so many kinds of orchids and bonsais.

We wandered through the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for about 2 hours and must admit that we skipped some parts. Saw some people sitting on a bench reading a book. That would have been nice also. But hey, duty calls, that's not why we went there.
