Late Summer Brooklyn

I love the old ladies at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, in their extravagant sun hats and sunglasses, sneaking in their gardening gloves and shears and snipping some flowers and herbs here and there for their own gardens. Maybe sneak is the wrong word because they are surprisingly indiscreet. I can’t wait to get old and get away with everything.

I had a nice late day at the gardens, it’s not quite late enough for migration so I set my sights on the things I usually ignore – turtles and fishies. The occasional flower. I did see and hear a few warblers, but hardly close enough to get any pictures. I did get a (blurry) picture of this bunny, though!

Bunny guy again

Fishy in murky waters

I like this guy, he looks like he lives in a cave

This is kind of art

Sun bathing turtle

Roses (yawn)

Of course I had to end the journey by foolheartedly stepping in a nice sized (and very obvious) bog of mud (nice cankles)
