Central Park Conservatory Garden
We didn't expect to find tulips in bloom.
One here or there, perhaps, but not like this.
Despite the encroachment of blossoms, the great bones of the Central Park Conservatory Garden are still well in evidence.
In the midst of the ringed beds, the maidens are dancing, though their fountain isn't flowing yet.
The daffodils are out in force, a torrent of bloom.
Forsythia and even a few of those early magnolia blooms cling on.
Beyond the garden, in the park at large, the ducks are enjoying a big city brunch.
Or simply, as we did, enjoying the day.
