An oasis

Today, the three of us--Rachel was feeling up to it--visited the New York Botanical Garden, located in the Bronx. We decided to celebrate Mother's Day today, just to be different (and beat the crowds!). Here is a selection of photos. The tulips were in bloom, as were lilacs, peonies (the up-close photo), and dogwood--among other flowers. It is really a beautiful place, like an oasis of green ... and orange, and white, and purple ...

Afterwards, we had a quick dinner at Whole Foods market and then saw "Spider-Man 3." The movie was a disappointment, but it was weird to step outside and be in the middle of the city where Spider-Man was flying through the sky!
