My quest to photograph my way through as many gardens as I can on Long Island took a slight detour two weekends ago and brought me to Brooklyn. I can now cross Brooklyn Botanic Gardens off the list of gardens to visit. The gardens are a nice surprise in Brooklyn, you step through the entrance and you escape all the noise on the streets and forget exactly where you are. It is a quiet, peaceful and beautiful escape in Brooklyn. Since I took so many photos while touring the grounds, this is part one of my Brooklyn Botanic Gardens tour, a look inside the Cranford Rose Garden.
