New York Botanical Garden

These past few weeks have felt more like April and less like June as the days have been filled with one rainstorm after another. This weekend the rain finally let up (at least during the day), and we enjoyed a beautiful day at the New York Botanical Garden.

The current event that's going on now and started just yesterday is The Edible Garden - a summer-long celebration of growing and eating good food. To kick off this event, celebrity chefs like Martha Stewart (see below...yes, that's Martha!) were brought in to give food demonstrations. We opted out of the $20 fare for the festival and instead walked around the grounds soaking up the green trees + grass, beautiful flowers and time together. It made for a lovely Saturday afternoon. We highly recommend taking a visit!

The gardens look so beautiful--and hey, Martha Stewart is pretty cool too :). Glad you had a fun weekend!
