An Evening at The New York Botanical Garden

There’s so much to see and learn at The New York Botanical Garden - I always try to attend their events and visit their exhibits.

Last week, after a long day at QVC, I went to The New York Botanical Garden for their annual Conservatory Ball. More than 550 guests were in attendance. The evening celebrated Chairman Emerita Maureen Chilton and her nine-years of service as NYBG’s Board Chairman. The affair also raised more than two million dollars to benefit the Children’s Education and Plant Research and Conservation Programs at NYBG. But first, since I arrived about an hour early, I had enough time to walk through some of the gardens, including the blooming Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden - one of the most popular NYBG destinations this time of year, when more than 650-varieties of roses are in peak bloom - they were all so beautiful.
