This is the view over a garden plot outside Gracie Mansion, the mayor's official residence. But he doesn't live there. This bright planting is around a huge vent area, and is quaint in a very naive way. Second time today I've used that word.
Morning glories. Invasive weeds with gorgeous, pick-me-up flowers.
Flopping helianthus and a stunning sedum. And a grate.
And the cat's whiskers: cleome.
