  1. All those bright yellows, but it's the Cornus mas that captivates me. My Cornelian cherry was 7 inches tall, had 14 buds (I counted), and was reduced to a 3 inch stub by winter snowpack this year. But you've shown me what it will look like some day. Come back in March in 10 or 12 years, I'll post a bright yellow photo to rival yours from Battery Park.

  2. Now I feel a bit guilty for all the birching I have done about the bad weather. When you put them all together it was a pretty nice month after all. Sometimes it takes a bit of perspective.

  4. Why this looks like the perfect chapter opener for a book. It's a beautiful montage.

  5. Wow. All those yellows! For us it was mostly pink (orchids mostly) and orange (Strelitzia, some Aloes).
    Enjoy spring!
