Peonies

The Monday snowstorm has already melted and it didn’t stop the progression of the seasons. Happy Spring Equinox today, happy warmer days are ahead! I’ve been thinking about patience lately and looking forward to spring finally arriving. So here are some shots of what’s in bloom in NYC.

I fell in love with the flower market on 28th Street slowly, becoming more and more curious as I whooshed through for one thing or another at the beginning of a work day, on a mission for just the right items for multiple events at a time.

As I had more time to look around I realized what a bountiful living museum it is to flowers from all over the world: colors, textures and scents.

Each variety has its own presence, some quiet, some bursting.

And some will be opening up more very soon as we wait patiently for warmer weather and gentle breezes.
