All In One Month

All In One Month . . .

NYC at Month’s End
(Joan of Arc Monument, Upper West Side)

The year 2016 began in New York City with an almost springlike feel. A few scattered wildflowers could even be found holding onto one or a few fading blooms. A week passed, and then the first sustained polar cold arrived, which provided frozen views of wildflowers gone to seed. Winter appeared to be shaping into a bright and dry season until, all in one day, the blizzard hit, a wipe out of a white out that has, at least for now, placed the wildflowers of the West Village beneath a white blanket over two feet thick.

What a difference a month can make!
