Today's photos are from Petra Williams, who has a long history here at the GPOD of taking us on her gardening travels. She's taken us to Old Westbury Gardens on Long Island in New York (HERE), the Central Park Conservatory Garden in New York City (HERE), and the Desert Botanic Garden in Phoenix, Arizona (HERE), as well as her own summer-house garden in Vermont (HERE). Today she's taking us back to New York again. She says, "On a Friday evening, just as spring was starting up here, my husband and I went to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx to see their Orchid Show called Chandeliers. In addition seeing all those gorgeous orchids beautifully placed in The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, the price of admission included a glass of wine. Quite the nice evening. On the way to the Conservatory, there were a few trees that caught my eye, one of the largest star magnolias that I’ve seen in full bloom, and a paperbark maple that didn’t have a leaf, but what a trunk! I also got some pictures of the Conservatory at sunset. It is such a lovely building." Gorgeous, Petra! I love NYBG.
