The Botanical Gardens are absolutely gorgeous. They're like the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park but about four times as big. In addition to the greenhouses they also have extensive outdoor gardens, walking paths, fountains and children's gardens. It's an oasis in the middle of the Bronx.

Ella's on the far right.
Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter except with rain and lightening... I'm not sure I'll ever get used to the weather here.
