Greenhouse

I was in Greenwich Village a few weeks ago and passed by the Jefferson Market Garden so I went in and took a stroll. It is a lovely little garden and it makes you almost forget you are in the midst of Manhattan. The Jefferson Market building used to be a courthouse and is now a public library. I thought this greenhouse was pretty. I'd love to have a garden with a greenhouse some day!

un petit jardin au milieu de Manhattan, encore un coin de Paradis dans la grande ville. c'est pour cela (aussi) que j'aime autant NYC


a small garden in the middle of Manhattan, still a corner of Paradise in the large city. it is for that (as) as I like NYC as much

Oh yes, Lori, I would love to have a green house someday. That is a lovely photo of that one.

That's cool! A greenhouse in library? That area of the complex looks like a good place to relax in the midst of the fast-paced Big Apple.

This photo comes by the way because it finally gives me a pò of coolness (to Rome it is too much still heat). :D

You're right, one would never guess this scene is in the middle of the city. A virtual plant oasis!

Very nice. I'm sure that's someone's favorite spot in the midst of all that is New York.

I don't blame you for wanting one. That would be a great place to escape.

I've never been there but your photo does make it feel like you are somewhere else.

I would love to have a green house someday, too! And what a wonderful city you live, Lori!
