One thought on “Country Living in Da Bronx

  1. I was so delighted to see that I am not the only artist enamored with this oasis in the city! I too have many photographs of the cornucopia of living exhibits in this outdoor museum.

    I have visited the Garden for over 30 years with nieces and nephews, students and friends and alone. Each visit is like a trip to another state. The Bronx is beautiful…if only the Media would leave their ivory towers and go smell the roses of the Bronx, they would find that they could have something to say about The Bronx…the only borough to have a definite article in its name.

    Thank you for the treat.
