Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to be out walking on a beautiful sunny day.  Add beautiful architecture and a flower or two, and I’m in heaven!

Pink and purple hydrangeas peep out from behind an iron railing…

This old, green french door has a mysterious and romantic air…

I could live here!

White, brown or grey – every one of the brownstones of the Upper West Side has its own character and charm!

    I love these….I think I might even recognize picture #3. It looks like something I used to admire on Riverside Drive.

      Hi Helen,

      I’m pretty sure that window WAS on Riverside Drive….shh, don’t tell! I “raided” my picture files to find another window for this post since I like to post odd numbers of photos.

      I’ve gotten my first 12 bug bites of the summer. About 8 of them are on one foot and I’m in agony. I guess I’m still tasty in my old age! 😉


  2. We love when people keep their Upper West Side facades well kept. There’s nothing more beautiful than window boxes in bloom during the spring! Beautiful shots, Joanna!
