A beautiful, astounding sunny day
Go up to the seventies by subway to meet Frances
, painter, knitter extrordinaire, Anglophile, all round interesting person. So we check out her neighborhood --here the Ansonia....
A bar with a wonderful harp --it will be St. Patty's Day soon but we
go to the knitting shop opposite instead and start thinking green.
When we get to Central Park we discover that lots of people have got there before us...
but here's Frances looking elusive in her astounding (hand knit) sweater.
Daffs springing from fallen leaves
and the Lenten roses I'm addicted to.
The rose briars are a wonderful purply color
and the catkins dangle prettily before distant buildings.
They are out on the lake already
and having lunch beside it.
The temperature was about 70'F
