While It Lasts

The first flowering of spring is on the wane, and the earliest flowering plants - magnolias, tulips and cherry blossoms - were very bright in the sun this morning, but on their way to losing their petals and subsiding into green leaves. The next wave should be hitting us very soon - the lilacs, wisterias, azaleas and lindens. This is a section of Washington Square Park along one of the main entrances, planted for maximum impact on the pedestrians passing by. Spring in NYC is short, and the summers are hot and long, so it's good to enjoy the best of this weather by getting outside, while it lasts.

From Logan Daily Photo - Everyday I use a photo from the Daily Photo Group as my backdrop until the next day, and today it is from your site. Thank-you.

My, isn't that pretty??
Our tulips haven't sprung yet - it's funny - our spring starts sooner but seems to last longer.

Beautiful photo and great explanation. We are slightly ahead of you in that cherry blossoms and tulips are gone while the azaleas have arrived.
