Brooklyn Botanical Gardens in the Spring

I have been meaning to go the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for a couple of weeks because I wanted to see the Cherry Blossoms in bloom. 

 I haven't to the gardens in a couple of years and I really need to rectify that and at least come every couple of months in the Spring/Summer and see it in the Fall as well. 

A wedding was taking place while we were at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and it is a beautiful backdrop besides all the random people watching your wedding. I think this is a gorgeous place for a wedding or engagement pictures. 

I really thought these tulips were beautiful. They look they were painted because of the two tone colors of the flower. 

 This is the vegetable garden, which I think is awesome! I wish I could have one and have it look this pretty and usable.

 Tulips for days!

A lot of the flowers were purple my favorite color! These dark purple ones were called Queen of Night.

ROME, ITALY - Roman Forum and Coliseum

 Coliseum was built in 80AD and made of concrete and sand. It is amazing how long this massive building has been around. 

Roman Forum

Lots of big doors everywhere.

The Altare della Patria or Altar of the Fatherland in English, also known as the National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II is a monument built in honor of Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a unified Italy.

Even the water is green! :) I guess it is better than brown. 
I love this!

We didn't get to go inside the Pantheon because it closed early because it was a holiday. 

Everyone drives one of this and the gas stations are tiny just like their transportation.
