Tom’s New HAT • A BOLERO

J J’s had been here on 5th Avenue since 1911……New York’s oldest continually running hat shop….it is the “GO TO” store for New              Yorkers seeking a new hat.

 

I went shopping there today for my new hat…….which I will decorate for this years EASTER PARADE on 5th Ave.

My new hat………..being steamed and cleaned…….by my very cute salesman.

[ OOPS….I can’t remember his name]

I LOVE my new black wool felt……… BOLERO.

These are some of the LOVELY LADIES that will be appearing on my new BOLERO.

My Easter hat from 2018…..will be retired.

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.

My apartment all aglow…….

Not Spring…..not Winter ……..but a beautiful day in Manhattan

WINTER FASHION on the Streets of NYC
