It’s barely a month into winter and I can’t take it anymore! I can’t wait for spring and summer and even fall! One way I stay sane is to keep in mind that the Philly Flower Show is not all that far away. Just another 6 weeks or so and that harbinger of spring will be here! So today’s throwback is to some spring flowers at the flower show.
One of my fav spots in Manhattan is Grand Central Terminal. This throwback is to 2015 and the Christmas decorations on the terminal. For those unfamiliar with the area, that span to the right that looks like it is going right into Grand Central is the Park Avenue bridge that takes traffic up and around the terminal. That area has been featured in a number of movies including I Am Legend and the Avengers. The building behind Grand Central was the Pan Am Building. It’s now the Met Life Building.
But it could get worse! I took a spill nearly a month ago on some wet subway grates and my butt and knee are still hurting! Today was almost another spill on the subway, but luckily I righted myself. Even a little snow can make things rough, but at least it’s not like the 2011 snowstorm we had right around New Year’s. This photo was taken on the sand in Bradley Beach. We easily had over three feet of snow with even higher drifts.
I’m not a fan of cold weather and winter is tough for me. There is one thing that keeps my going until Spring arrives – The Philadelphia Flower Show. I love seeing all the amazing flowers and imagining how one day I could make my yard look like that – if only all the deer would go away! I especially love bulbs, like tulips, hyacinths, irises and more so today’s throwback is to some tulips from the 2010 Flower Show.
My daughter and I took a few days off and went to Salem, Mass. I worked out some plot problems and researched a sequel for GHOST OF A CHANCE. We also got to visit the Peabody Essex Museum where they had an exibit called XYZT: The Fourth Dimension. Basically, it was a number of light-based exhibits where your interaction in one way or another (movement, breath, sound) created new patterns of light. Here’s what two of those exhibits looked like!
