Fun in the sun SUNDAY in Central Park

Sundays in Central Park are always a delight……..New Yorkers and tourists……….all “doing their thing”…..or trying to “out do” one another.  Sunning……boating……..running……..bicycling…………reading……eating…………walking the dog………..and slumming.

IT IS ALL THE ENTERTAINMENT ONE COULD POSSIBLY ASK FOR.

Tonight on the great lawn is Movie Time!  HORROR!  THE SHINING.  Thousands will gather for a picnic………wine and fine dine for some.  Others will just bring buckets of popcorn.  It is a warm night…..the stars will be out…….and New Yorkers will get free entertainment.  How great is that!

The BETHESDA ANGEL cleans up her act !

 

 From the top of the stairs…………

 

the Bethesda Angel looked peaceful and quiet.

 

WITH HER WINGS SPREAD………..after a cleaning [pigeon poop].

 

 

And her cherubs enjoyed their “rub-a-dud dub”.

 

Plants on their way out……..

 

A lone lilly that will be gone soon……….

 

This beauty was the last one in the fountain.

 

GONE GONE GONE

 

MUD MUD MUD !

 

Boots and brooms.

 

CENTRAL PARK CONSERVANCY………..working hard to keep our park beautiful.

 

Power wash pushing away the sludge.

The Water Lillies and the Lotus Pods loaded onto trucks where they will over-winter in a greenhouse in Connecticut.

The last lonely Lilly to be trucked away.

Papyrus [as in paper making]………she will return in the Spring.

Canadian geese………..oblivious to it all…….

 

A harpist playing odes to the end of summer.

 

A cute guy…………watching and wondering……..”what are they doing to that fountain”?
