    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!

    June 20 The forecast rain didn’t happen so, having lined up for senior tickets in the morning, we were able to see an uninterrupted ‘Othello” in Central Park last night. The set and costumes were magnificent and the actors did their best but the direction gave  a somewhat bland production. I personally thought that some players were miscast and this distracted from the illusion.

NY Day – Casualty on Second Avenue, Tree forms and more . . . . .

Click on the pictures for detail

            This elder citizen collapsed on the sidewalk at 93rd Street and Second Avenue.  Good Samaritans of New York hastened to his aid; one calling for an ambulance, another placing his backpack under the of the head of the stricken man for support:

The ambulance arrived after about ten minutes, and the paramedics prepared to lift him into it. But, all was well, although bleeding a little from his face, he insisted upon  getting to his feet with their help and making his way home under his own steam!

The outdoor painting season has begun in Central Park. Here is a life class in session at the 90th Street entrance:

The model was dressed for outdoors - otherwise the viewing crowd would have been a lot larger, I imagine!

I wandered up the riding path to the Conservatory Garden which is , right now, a hive of activity–both gardener-wise and blossoming-wise.

Feverish activity by the Conservatory gardeners trying to catch up with the late Spring . . . . .

The magnolias were not to be outdone. They were bursting with energy and joy:

They inspired this watercolourist. She could hardly wait to get her paintbox out!

Have you noticed the very imaginitive shapes that trees form when the their cambrium is diverted from its natural path by damage or man-made restriction? Here are a few I found yesterday:

Wild boar?
