Beautiful May 1

After yesterday’s fiasco, driving into the city, we swore off getting into the car today. It was such a beautiful day, third in a row, and we were thinking of taking a nice fast walk. Susie then had an idea. What if we took a more leisurely stroll at Wave Hill, a public garden, 20 minutes away. She said, “It means we have to get back in the  car, but I promise it will be worth it.” She’s the driver around here, so if she was willing to drive, I was willing to be a passenger. I only shuddered a little as we headed back toward the city. But, this time Susie was prepared:

And it really was only 20 minutes away. By going at 10:30 in the morning, we avoided any crowds. What a beautiful spot, right on the Hudson River, with a view of the Palisades in New Jersey.  I had no idea I would see so many flowering trees and plants. I experienced the spring that has not yet come to Maine.

This flower looked just like “baby’s breath” but it was actually a large bush, and a different plant.

You can see we weren’t far from the George Washington Bridge.

Tomorrow I head back to Maine. Bruce says the trees and plants are ready to burst open on the next warm sunny day. I’ll get to see spring bloom again!

    Gorgeous pictures! I just read a couple months of your blog — you do beautiful jewelry. I can’t help but wonder if you have any relative named Francie Fernald. Her family is from Boston and she has some in Maine. She’s dear friend of mine but we’re terrible at keeping in touch! Saw her in August and have email several times since. We go way back, Francie & I!!!
