We’re expecting our Azalea Garden to look like a rainbow brought to earth for at least a couple more weeks. The weather’s pretty perfect for it, so if you happen to be stopping by, you miiiiight wanna head over there. —MN

Delightful!

A few shots of the new rooftop installation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A little underwhelming on an overcast day but I think a bright, sunny day would mean more interesting reflections. Loved the wisteria against the emerald AstroTurf.

Yes!!

Changing seasons in Central Park.

Gorgeous grape hyacinths

Honey and Leftie say, “Hop to it and get outside! It’s the first day of spring!”
Our bunny visitors decided to take in the warm weather at the Harlem Meer. Where are you spending the first day of #SpringInCentralPark?

OMG! Bunnies on leashes! Cuteness overload.

NYBG Orchid Show 2014

This year’s New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show is inspired by a contemporary Key West estate designed by Raymond Jungles in the Florida Keys. Tropical foliage and vibrant orchids are set against contemporary architectural elements.

I found the design this year was not quite as spectacular as some of the previous shows, but in keeping with the idea of a tropical paradise getaway, it was beautiful, elegant and relaxing.

The Orchid Show is on until April 21 and I highly recommend a visit for anyone who loves flowers or if you need a brief respite from the hectic life we all lead in NYC.
