Flowers in Central Park


On Monday, immediately after I read Ashley's post, I texted her: Hey!! What part of the park did you take those gorgeous pictures? I have to go today!

So after my kids got out of school, we scooted over to the exact location she told me. FYI: My scooter was stolen! I left it unattended at the playground. It probably got snatched while I was pushing my kids on the swing or some other noble parenting act. Oh well. In the mean time, I've been borrowing one from a friend.  Do you know how ridiculous I felt calling another grown-up and asking if I could borrow his scooter? I didn't think about it until he already picked up the phone. I felt like such a nerd, but it didn't stop me from asking! His scooter is better than my old one. Now I'm tempted to upgrade. But this time, I'm buying a lock. ;)    
 


It was so exciting to see such a massive tree in full bloom! Good thing we went when we did because the wind had already blown down most of the flowers. I don't know what's left by now, but if you want to see for yourself, you can find these trees behind the Met. Perfect place for a picnic.

PS
I changed my blog's layout again and brought back the sunburst! Feels good to have it back. Thanks to Ana over at Blog Milk for helping me get my blog looking like itself again. Only better!

  3. Nice! Do you think scooters would be a good form of transportation in the bay area? I'm looking for cheap commuting options before i choose an apartment

  6. So pretty, the trees in my yard are also blooming pretty white flowers. I hope the wind doesn't knock them all down.
