Went down to Soho yesterday where I saw
a brilliant zoo of inflatable animals.
and a yellow shop front.
On 4th Avenue the workers and the barricades gleamed
as did the artwork on the poles near Cooper Union.
When I was a child I used to hang over the fences of fortunate people who had gnomes in their gardens. I was overwhelmed with jealousy. My parents -- in many ways the kindest of people -- failed to share my enthusiasm.
Anyway, walked over to Union Square to discover that you could buy Jack in the Pulpits which are pretty rare in Manhattan. However, you need a woods to grow them.
It wasn't quite so cold as the outfit above suggests.
This last picture of the Flatiron Building is a contrast on purpose.
