High Line Thaw

It is now suddenly very warm in New York City. Some early spring flowers include Witch Hazel and Pussy Willow. Crocii were in the lawn but off limits for photography.

I had fun watching a mocking bird gulp down berries:

    I have walked the High Line in summer, spring and fall but never winter. With the wintery March weather maybe I still can.

      Hope you do. The dead grasses and seed pods are lovely. Best to go there very early or very late on a weekday.

    I really like this series of photos in the High Line, Sherry, because it clearly demonstrates both seasons. Wonderful photos — I especially liked the head-on photo of the mockingbird with the berry in his mouth for its whimsy. And I have never seen witch hazel so this was not only interesting but stunning. And the half-emptied milkweed pod is also a fave.

    It is getting warmer here too and the birds are returning to the park nearby to our home. Wonderful images, Sherry! Hope all is well with you ❤

    Snap! 🙂 I love witch hazel and that’s a superb image! Glad to see you out and about again, Sherry, even if slowly.

    Spring is in the air! I love the photo of bark. I think the different types of bark on trees are so photogenic. It’s a photo project I’ve been thinking of for years!

      Thanks Denzil. I upped the vibrance a little to bring out the colors I saw in the bark. I love textures and patterns. Rocks, minerals, and lichen also intrigue me.
