It was very sunny and warm outside today, so I decided to take a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to see the cherry trees. The Rock Garden and Bonsai Room are also two of my favorite areas in the gardens, so I made sure to see those as well. The giftshop has a wonderful array of items for the urban gardener including hundreds of seed packets as well as wide variety of beautiful indoor and outdoor plants of all shapes and sizes (including bonsai trees and cacti). However, if you can't get to the shop the website also has some items including The Complete Herb Book, Tree Grows in Brooklyn tote, and an elephant watering can, that would make fun gifts for your eco-minded friends.
