New York: one woman, one garden, twelve seasons.
It amazes me how there is such wild and open beauty so near a densely populated crowded city of millions. Your photos made me think I was visiting a forest in Canada.Love that sassafras leaf.
Gorgeous. Can't believe there was no-one else there. It's one of my dreams to see *proper* fall in your part of the world one day.
Your photos and Vince's have made me think of J.F. Kensett (who, incidentally is buried in Greenwood Cem)http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/kens/hd_kens.htmAnd since he is my favorite, I think I may need to make a painting off Pelham Bay.
Marie, Gorgeous colours, I am such an Autumn girl... Thank you:-)
That was sooo relaxing. beautiful photos and colors. Wish I was there,Xo Jane
Well, another "autumn girl" says thankyou, too!And, from your recent post on birds in the parks, I followed the story of the raptors, so thought you might like this:http://urbanhawks.blogs.com/urban_hawks/2010/11/the-legend-of-pale-male.html
I can't believe I've never been there; now I want to go!
Laurrie - well, it is amazing...also that we can walk there peacefully and safely.Helen - I hope you make it here for the leaves. They are worth it.Frank - why, thanks for that link. What wonderful paintings. I blush to admit I didn't know him.Anyes - they're still there if you'd like to go and see :-)Jane - meh, you have good leaves, too. Go, Blue Ridge Mountains!MIT, thanks for all your good tips. Especially for the South African poetry journal/blog...Ellen - saw some fat, fat field garlic, but too tough to pull up - ground was very hard and had no digging sticks.
