My World Tuesday

The Queens Botanical Garden wants to be the Botanical Garden noted for presentation of plants as unique expressions of cultural traditions.

It's a living museum serving the most ethnically diverse county in the United States. QBG is committed to presenting collections, education and research initiatives and programs that demonstrate environmental stewardship, promote sustainability and celebrate the rich cultural connections between people and plants.

We visited this weekend in November before all the flowers were gone.


Thanks so much to the My World Tuesday team for this new meme :
Klaus, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy & Louise

Don't forget to go over and visit!

SOOOOOOOO beautiful! I love the beautiful colors, but you capture of the sculpture makes me just want to sit among all that beauty and look and ponder.

These are just wonderful! As a former resident of Queens, I do appreciate these very much. They show a side of NYC few ever get to see.
