The garden Gods of BBG were kind to us this past Wednesday. We saw 8 bunnies!!! We’ve really been craving to see some green and get out of the concrete jungle but that won’t happen till July 4th weekend. Last year we joined BBG for the summer perk of members only after hours. It’s the best time to see the garden. At times you have it all to yourself. Even though we hear the whoosh of cars, being buried deep in the green of the native flora and fauna garden takes it all away. So you feel a little like you’re walking the woods but this time its way easier to get home and there are plenty of toilets.
I have to start with the bunny pictures because bunnies are adorable.
We found in some areas we were the only 2 people walking around. A lot of the time you hear the cars go by but it’s easy to ignore the sounds when you see this.
This is how we look for nature in the city. There are times where I feel like I’m going to go crazy because I’m stuck in the humdrum of a city I can’t live without. I get very agitated without nature.
They’ve made lots of changes to the garden. BBG seems bigger and greener now.
It was a fairly grey day and rained on us a little but bad weather days give us the privacy we want when we’re looking for private space in the city.
Last year we went on a critter tour with BBG. It was all about bats. It was pretty cool. Our guide taught us the difference between the types of bats, explained how the spiders weave webs at night and eat them when their done – that’s why we don’t seem then in the next day. We think we brought home some spiders. We had a bit of an outbreak in our apartment for several months after this tour and they were different spiders. They weren’t our normal household ones. Never realized that there’s a good amount of nature left in NYC. Once in a a while we see raccoons and possums in our neighborhood.
Till we are able to step out and get a breathe of fresh air – these pictures will have to do.
