Flores de Mayo

Flores de Mayo . . .

Viola sororia
(NYC 05 06 2018)

Instant summer temperatures in the center heart of the spring season have made Manhattan bloom at the start of May.

Just a few days of sun and shower have combined to turn the blue, white, and brown tones of the cold season into a multicolored outdoor scene anchored in green:

Dandelion

Taxicum officinale
(NYC 05 06 2018)

Dead-nettle

Lamium purpureum
(NYC 05 06 2018)

English Plaintain

Plantago lanceolata
(NYC 05 06 2018)

Garlic Mustard

Alliarim petiolata
(NYC 05 06 2018)

And one for the late Gary Lincoff, mycologist, guide, and author, who left us in Manhattan on March 16th:

(NYC 05 05 2018)

Memories remain as May flowers on the West Side of Manhattan.

Earth Day 48

Earth Day 48 . . .

A Good Sign
(NYC 04 22 2018)

Earth Day 48 in New York, New York: bright sun under a bluebird sky, air still chill, trees just in the mood to flower.
The open ground has begun to be graced, laced with a scattering of new blooms, some wild:

Blue

Scilla siberica

Gold

Ranunculaceae

Spring has certainly “felt late” this 2018. Clouded rain has dominated, interspersed by days, like today’s Earth Day, as bright as can be.

Bittercress Brassicaceae Bathed In Brightness

Happy Earth Day 48!

Spring Snow
(NYC 03 22 2018)

The flowers of Tuesday’s Vernal Equinox now rest under snow. The thaw can be expected soon, though, the white of crystalized water replaced again by blooming wildflowers. Until then . . .

Happy 8th Anniversary, Wildflowers of the West Village.

Vernal Equinox 2018

Vernal Equinox 2018 . . .

Snowdrops on the First Day of Spring
(NYC 03 20 2018)


Spring began at 12:15 p.m. EST in New York City.
Kind it was one of the most important astronomical alignments of the year coincided with the noon lunch hour. A quick stroll along the west side of Manhattan found the sun shy behind an overcast white sky above the steel gray flow of the Hudson. I found the season’s pastel color above the softening browns of the ground: white common snowdrop and the purples and golds of feral Crocus vernus.

Asteraceae Xmas Ornaments
(NYC 12 24 2017)

The winter dress of the season’s Asteraceae retains the same daisy’s face, a face now tanned by age, sharp and crisp, tipped by a spread of star points.

Ornaments, now, the seeded wildflowers strung along a path beside the Hudson River. Holiday flower faces in some places as thick as an evergreen, festive, festooned with . . . ornaments.
