All sorts of little bits of burgeoning tree

have been falling on to parked cars on 25th Street (and every other street for that matter)...

... forming a sort of yellow confetti which looks specially good if the car has recently been polished.

The weather is much warmer and this Brooklyn inhabitant has exactly the right idea.
His cushion is lodged where the air conditioner will later be, from whence
 he can survey all that surrounds him.

Very warm last evening with mist in the air. The sort of day when
 the Empire State Building has its top stories removed.

Ah! the joys of blogging! Such a good way to meet people from all over the world.
Yesterday a lovely little envelope arrived from Isobel Bella Bheag in Scotland who makes the
most beautiful handmade cards. Her recent blog posts have been about a visit to
the islands off the coast of Scotland where they make tweed. A very different world indeed.


  1. Oh I love this post Elizabeth - the photos are gorgeous and the dog at the window is just so lovely...I was just talking about you with Malin and Judy at book club! Off to check out Bella`s blog...

  2. eWhat fabulous photo the first on is and I love the dog hanging out on the window sill such a good puppy !

    cheers, parsnip

  3. Hello Elizabeth - glad your cards arrived ok. Thanks for the mention on your blog.

  4. At first I was trying to figure out what kind of effects you were using on that red and yellow photo. But, wow, straight out of camera--red car, yellow blossoms, tree reflections. Bet the owner of the car won't appreciate the beauty as he should.

    Like the doggy in the window and the misty tower too.

  5. That is the most adorable card! Does she sell them?

    The yellow buds against the red (doesn't it look like a shiny finger nail?) is very eye-catching.

  6. Hello Elizabeth :) That first 2 photos are DIVINE! Really look like a postcard or from a gallery. Missing you a lot and hope you have a fabulous weekend. Big hugs always...love/M

  7. Interesting curiosities, Elizabeth! Love the two red reflective ones. I succumbed to watching the wedding!


I look forward to hearing from you!
