Fall comes to New York City in many ways.Trees in the parks turn beautiful colors. People pull out their coats, hats and scarves. Pumpkin Spice everything shows up in stores. One of the prettiest celebrations of autumn takes place at the New York Botanical Garden.
Every fall, the Botanical Garden, in the Bronx, brings together the products of pumpkin growers from around the area to create its “Pumpkin Patch.” Now, when I think of pumpkins, I see an orange gourd. But visiting this exhibit I found out that there is a wide variety of pumpkins and gourds. They come in a rainbow of colors, shapes and textures.
In addition, the Garden has created Jack O’Lanterns that are placed around the grounds.
