Refuge in the Greenhouses
Lately here we have been experiencing a pattern of snow, rain and sleet ("wintery mix" as they say) with the occasional cold sunny day that hints of spring as the sun's intensity begins to gradually emerge. If I want a "breath of Spring air" with the warm, sweet scent of flowers it will mean a trip to one of the several greenhouses on the neighboring campuses.
I shot these pictures a while back in the phenomenal greenhouse at the NY Botanical Gardens which, unfortunately, is not nearby enough for a casual trip. I do hope to get there again this year though.
