NY Botanical Garden -Darwin's Garden
This week was a busy week -emotional in some ways ..I did pay a visit on Wed. to the NY Botanical Garden --aside from the wonderful Henry Moore sculptures around the grounds, the Conservatory featured 'Darwin's Garden' -it displayed some of the species that he found and loved (black poppies), his notebooks and artifacts -in a makeshift office -and so many wonderful flowers. On Thursday for a long art class, this gave me inspiration. We painted azaleas...then ran in a night 5K, took a rainy day off, and ran in healthy kidney 10K --tired! from 50K still.
