Spring fills me each year with surprise, delight and joy (and, as you can see, I never tire of taking photographs of the flowering trees and blooms either!)
I’m in Washington, D.C. on tour this week with the New York City Ballet at Kennedy Center. Although the weather was gorgeous the day we arrived, it’s turned cloudy and cold ever since…which is not so bad when you have to be indoors rehearsing, but puts a definite damper on sightseeing! After hibernating in the hotel room this morning, I finally got up the courage to pile on some layers and go for a brisk walk. And I was so glad I did. The grey skies were the perfect foil for the vibrant blossoms that are bursting forth on many of the trees.
There was a softness to the statues…
Historic hotels looked majestic…
And the crisp air was delicately perfumed.
Just a tad romantic? You bet!
The Conservatory Garden at 105th and 5th Avenue in New York's Central Park is a feast for the eyes and nose at this flowering time of year! Inspiration for artists and painters abounds, too!
