This past Friday we took a little train ride into Brooklyn to meet up with friends and explore the Botanic Gardens there. Signs of spring are just barely starting to show, but the gardens were beautiful nonetheless. I was very excited to discover that Patrick's Dougherty's stick installation was still there and the kids had a blast running in and out of the maze of fairytale-like doors and arches. Dougherty has completed over two hundred such installations, each one unique and wonderfully shaped. If you ever have a chance to see one of them in person, I would strongly recommend going and be sure to take a child along - they will be completely enchanted!
