My Favorite Things – Spring in Central Park

I love Central Park.  Period.  (But maybe I love it even a little more in the fall and spring.)

On my walk today, I stopped to smell these white crab apple blossoms…

Marveled at the glorious sprays of pink cherry…

And wondered just what kind of flower these were.

He was busy painting these…

But I wanted instant gratification, so I took a picture.

From the San Remo, the view of the park must be spectacular.  I like my ant’s view perspective all the same.

Even in spring, the park is full of mystery…

And light…

And a little romance, too!

    Oh sweet! The last picture is truly a winner.
    The flowers are azaleas. Very pretty!

    love, ma

    • Muito obrigada, Ma. I didn’t know those were azaleas, but that makes sense. Wish you could see the park right now. It’s truly gorgeous and smells divine, too.

      XOXO – J
