May Flowers of Manhattan

May Flowers of Manhattan . . .

Yellow Flag
(NYC 05 2020)

City wildflowers have never lifted my spirits more than during this month of May. Morning walks home from my essential worksite have cleansed my mind, filled my lungs with fresh air, and filled my eyes with life worth living. Views in bloom I hope will be the main lasting memory I keep of this chequered pandemic time.

Here are a few thousand words worth of photos to convey the magnificence of this May in Manhattan:

Wild Columbine

And last, and perhaps most iconic: the always cheerful Common Dandelion

All the above and more can be seen now during a walk through the city’s many green spaces. Grab a mask, and go . . .
