Spring in NYC

Blooming in central park
I escaped.
I fled. I flew.
Away from the grey cold rain of the Pacific Northwest and through the comfort of a middle seat on a red-eye flight, awoke to a city abloom and awake in springtime bliss.

NYC was ripe for the taking, and perfect for a mix of business (visiting clients) and pleasure (traveling with a friend for a cultural infusion).

I haven't fully processed the trip, but am getting there.

Until more comes to mind to share, I give you some images of spring in the big apple. Delightfully dripping with blooms and sunshine warm enough to play in the park and sit on the steps to take in the Vitamin D.

Wonderful blooms. I flew away too...except I'm in the desert, which is also blooming away and summer-time hot.

Lovely. That one picture of the wisteria with the bay window actually made me say "Wow!" I liked the bridge picture too.

Lilacs!! Tell me you stuck your nose right in those suckers! I'm turning green with envy right now.
