|A couple of weeks ago on a mildly overcast |
(or so it seemed) day, I started over the
Brooklyn Bridge on my way home—and by the
time I was halfway across, the sky looked like this!
(P.S. -- I did just make it off the bridge and
to shelter before the deluge began.)

|I went down the block from my mom's house|
to feed this mama swan and her almost-grown
cygnet. S could also be for "Sandy" and
"storm surge" (and "sad"), because not long after
I took this picture, the storm struck and the water
rose (and I trust these swans found shelter somewhere).

|Well, I thought this was interesting enough|
to pull out my camera and snap a picture.
But hardly anyone else in the vicinity
was giving this guy and his well-balanced
friend a second glance. That's NYC for you.

|Snapped these on my way home one evening—|
I just liked the way the petals caught the light.

|Yesterday I showed you a fooled-around-with|
tree peony, so here's one straight out of the camera.

|The tree peonies were in full,|
spectacular bloom last weekend.
I shot lots and lots of pictures,
some in color and some in b&w—
then had a little fun in Photoshop.

|It's that time of year, when the|
bluebells are in bloom at the
Brooklyn Botanic Garden. They're
pretty sweet on their own ...
|and just amazing when you|
multiply them by 40,000-plus.
