    June 13 Picnicked on The Great lawn in central Park to the music of The New York Philharmonic led by James Gaffigan. Great program with spectacular fireworks after the concert. The concert included two pieces composed by students from its education program — remarkable works (Bernstein style) from composers  11 and 12 years old respectively! They took their bows from the stage!

NY Day – Easter in the Park with Holly

I spent Easter Sunday in Central Park with my nephew’s (Colin) daughter Holly and her friend David. We set out with the intention of  photographing the hats in the Easter parade but we were distracted by all the happenings in the Park and arrived at the parade when it was practically finished. It was a wonderful Spring day; the Magnolias were just reaching their peak of perfection and the Cherries were full of blossom and even the Redbuds were beginning to sprout.
