Admission to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is free Tuesday through Friday (the grounds are closed closed Mondays, though offices are open) all Winter, from November 20 through February 29. Both the Native Flora Garden and Cranford Rose Garden are closed all Winter, but there's still stuff happening to see.

Come January, the Witchhazels put on their show.

Check out the Bonsai Museum any time.

And this is the best time of year to enjoy the Japanese Garden in contemplative solitude.

Best time ever to go to BBG: Just as snow is falling. Suddenly you realize why the stone lanterns in the Japanese garden are called "Snow Viewing Lanterns." Then peel off coat, snort back luscious semi-tropical flower smells in tropical house, have hot dog in cafe, (hope they'll still have it open below the Conservatory), and go home revived against bleak city winter blues! Thanks for the reminder.
