I went in search of winter aconite. I wanted to recreate a picture. This picture (linked), in fact. It's out of focus, but I like the point of view. I was too late. Of course. Rats. The aconite was all Elizabethan ruffles of green leaf.
This is that little park at the end of Cadman Plaza, at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge pedestrian ramp and the Henry Street off ramp, if you are a car.
It is nicely maintained. Quite a feat.
Magnolias will be next...they are opening, petal by early petal.
