Looking out of the window we see that the trees are greening out nicely
and that the huge red crane towers over the street.
The trees aren't fully in leaf but have that gauzy delicate look.
A pink dogwood on 22nd Street
and more leaves on the same road.....
looking up in Union Square
in the same place.
Yesterday morning as I was walking the dog I saw a man about to grind the stump of a dead tree. Now it looks like a little tomb.
Yesterday I bought a nasturtium and a salvia for the tree pits outside the building and picked up a brochure for the green festival which we probably won't go to.
One of the three tree pits so far. Pansies very cheerful and the calendulas should grow and grow. Watch this spot!
Always something picturesque about construction --here in Union Square
here on 23rd Street where they always dig up the road on Saturdays....
We are off to Brooklyn to eat at some outdoor food festival. Should be fun!
