Bayard Cutting Arboretum

My husband, Marc, and I went to Bayard Cutting Arboretum on Long Island, with two friends yesterday. It was a glorious day for a leisurely stroll and the grounds look lovely at this time of year. In the early evening, we stopped for a fabulous meal at the Jolly Fisherman’s Restaurant in Roslyn on the way back to New York City. It was a lovely day all round, thanks to our friends.

Central Park Spring Flowers

Photographed using a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 150-600 mm lens in Central Park Tuesday April 11. I find that my big lens can work a lot like a macro.

Macy’s Flower Show

Every year Macy’s at Herald Square has a spring flower show. I usually go. Some years are better than others. This year’s is a riot of color for the carnival theme. The poor fish must feel overwhelmed. I look a little better in the skinny mirror.

Wave Hill 3 of 3

The breezes from the Hudson help to cool keep it cool in the summer. We spent some time seated in the shade of an enormous Linden tree. The plants in the rock garden are randomly arranged in square tubs of varying sizes.

Wave Hill 1 of 3

The variety and quality of flowers at Wave Hill is exceptional. I am sorry but I do not know the names of many of these cultivars. If anyone can add a few names I would appreciate it.

The history of Wave Hill, starting in 1853, is interesting, see the history page at Wave Hill’s site.
