LEE the Birder and ARTIST

My friend….LEE……..a birder and artist……..spends a lot of time in Central Park

painting the birds in WATERCOLOR.

When I see her in the park………I always buy one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The GREAT BLUE HERON returns to Central Park

The GREAT BLUE HERON has returned to Central Park.  I don’t know here he goes when he decides to fly………but he always returns and hangs around for a while.

The MANDARIN DUCK is back………….he belongs somewhere in China………but has made an appearance here……..and New Yorkers are thrilled.

Thanks to Mitz Gami Photography for the photo of the heron.

Today is the First Day of SPRING

Some plants on my terrace have budded……..to welcome the start of Spring

In a month or so my terrace will return to “life”……….and look like this.

My pots will be filled with seedlings………….

The magnolias will be in bloom……….again

My green sweet potato vines will grow like crazy………

The lillies will grow into their glory…………..

My GREEN THUMBS will swing into action………..

The petunias will overtake their allotted space…………….

The crabapple tree has budded….and soon the flowers will appear.

The rhododendrons have set their buds……….

The LILACS are one my favorite bushes…………and oh their perfume………

New plants and new buildings………..I look forward to the plants……….but the skyscrapers are messing up my views.

POLAR BEAR VORTEX grips Manhattan

At 25 degrees below zero…{wind chill}……even the statue in Columbus Circle 

is freezing his B _ _ _’_ OFF.

NYC • Under a BLIZZARD watch

Central Park can no longer be seen from my terrace………..and the temperature is below FREEZING.  Brrrrrrrrr……..

But it is nice and cozy inside my apartment.  Drinking hot ginger and honey CHAI tea.

ZERO degree this morning

BOW BRIDGE in Central Park……… blurred out with fog and a light dusting of snow.

NYC is under a DEEP FREEZE

5º and the wind chill is even nuttier.  Not a lot of snow……just COLD COLD COLD winds.

The fog over the lake……..eerily pretty………and no snow on the Dakota roof.
