We started the day early when it was still foggy this Sunday, September 17, in Central Park. I hoped for Fall warblers but didn’t see many today. If I take the time to look I can always find some interesting things to photograph.

Same hot day I photographed the insects in Central Park. There are are quite a few wildflower beds around the park. The Conservatory Garden is good for flowers too. I love the bokeh on the Nikon 105 mm f 1:208 Micro lens. No special effects. OK, so the last one is a tree.
The new Hills on Governors Island are nice and green now and there are wildflower beds here and there. It is so quiet peacful on a weekdays and feels far from the city. We rented a surrey to peddal around the 172-acre island.
Today I had fun working on the flowers I photographed there in Corel Painter 2018.
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.
If anyone knows the name of this wildflower (next 2 pictures b elow) please let me know. I tried to find it in my flower books.
