  • Brooklyn Botanic Garden
    Apart from being treated to an abundant array of colorful and fragrant flora year-round, visitors to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden can enjoy strolling and relaxing in acres of green landscape. In fall, however, the garden's seasonal displays and exhibitions are a sight to see. Flowers in bloom include native wildflowers, orchids and roses. In fact, some of the original roses planted in the Cranford Rose Garden in 1927 still bloom today. Through September 21, families will enjoy the exhibition 100 Years and Growing, which looks back on the Children's Garden via images, recipes, newspaper excerpts, memorabilia and interactive displays. Beginning September 27, botanical artist Dick Rauh's work, specifically his pen and ink illustrations of the garden's bonsai collection, will be showcased in Patience, Paper, Pen, and Brush: Botanical Artwork by Dick Rauh. Also on September 27, fans of spice won't want to miss the Garden's annual Chile Pepper Festival, when visitors are invited to sample exotic peppers from around the globe.
