Roving Rube

August 30, 2003

Mossy fountain, Osborne Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden

What's New

The focal point of this plaza is a water basin more than 17 feet in diameter. Inside is a fountain, the bowl of which was carved from a piece of Indiana limestone that is said to be the widest ever brought to New York City. (from Brooklyn Botanic Garden site)

The Rube associates the BBG with the Cherry Blossom festival, but he discovered that it is even nicer to visit (and seems even bigger and more varied) this time of year with all the water-lilies in bloom (and much else).
