I was able to get in this garden over the weekend. I walk by but it is surrounded by a tall gate and not often open to the public. The robin was posing so nicely by the little koi pond that I thought he was fake...until he turned his head and looked me in the eye!
The Winter Garden was badly damaged in the 9/11 attacks. All that glass couldn't hold against the debris raining down on it. It was mainly full of shopping opportunities and not a priority in the cleanup. All the palm trees died more from exposure than anything. But it's back (and has been for years.) In some ways it looks just the same.
I'm not good with the food styling and natural light was scarce but this Baked Apple French Toast looked so good when I took it out of the oven that I had to take a photo! (Really...it looked good!) It's apple season and there are apple recipes calling my name!
