NYBG Rock Garden Evolves....

If anyone is interested in following the progression, this is a video of some pix I have taken since the beginning of May of the Rock Garden at New York Botanical Garden

I was at NYBG quite a few years ago. Remember walking a ridgetop patch of forest that was considered possibly the last virgin spot in the NYC area.

NYBG is right next to the Bronx Zoo, if memory serves.

(I've always thought zoos and arboretums should possibly be combined)
