What a magnificent oasis! The NYBG is serene, beautiful and well worth any effort it might take to get there. We were greeted by a sweet and lovely Hula performance that was part of the Georgia O'Keefe Hawaii exhibit. Inside the conservatory, we got to see the three-foot high Corpse Flower blossom -- which opened just days after our visit. After winding through the array of Hawaiian plants and flowers, we exited to see the lily and lotus pond -- which happened to be occupied, not only by these lovely blooms, but also by a mama Mallard and her 4 ducklings, which scrambled over the lily pads and paddled all around the perimeter of the pool. Then a light lunch at the Pine Tree Cafe, a brief visit to the excellent shop, and a leisurely meander through the O'Keefe paintings. A truly delightful day!!
