For my birthday weekend, my mom and I went to visit some friends in Brooklyn. We went to the Brooklyn botanic garden, which is one of my favorite things to do! It was so nice to be around thriving, happy plants in winter. They had different rooms in the greenhouse for different types of climates. My favorite was the tropical room, it was magical! There were cute bonsai trees, some of them over 100 years old! They had a lot of personality. There are also an old tree outdoors that was hollow inside. It was so big, my mom could fit inside! My mom was also kind enough to take some photos of me. She did pretty well, considering she’s not a photographer! I’m lucky to have such a great parent.
