I always believe in the importance of staying in touch with mother nature, smell the flowers on your way home, feel the tree that you pass by everyday, listen to the birds sing and enjoy the beautiful planet we’re living in.

Brooklyn Botanical Garden shares the same principle as me, which is inspiring people in all ages to stay curious and connected to nature.

The artist, Shayne Dark, who created it named it Windfall.

The garden contains many small gardens with unique features, such as Cheery Esplanade, Rose Garden, Magnolia Plaza, very self-explanatory and quite easy to find if you’re good with directions… We might have gotten lost just a few times.
