We’ve had so much snow lately that it’s yesterday’s news every other day!  And in the City, the snow rapidly melts into a dirty slush or turns into frozen walls around the parked cars.  Well that’s what you see when you walk the streets on your way to work.

BUT if you were to go into Central Park, you would see snow scenes whose beauty rivals Anywhere USA. Murray was in the park capturing these lovely scenes and was gracious enough to share them with us.  I told him how often my post on the 19″ snowfall in Central Park is viewed, it’s amazing really.  I hope you enjoy these as much.

Grackles, a common bird and sometimes confused with black starlings, are not considered by most to be a very exciting or exotic sighting.  Ah but look closely and you will SEE or rather C Grackles in a new light.

...a pocket full of rye.

Four and twenty blackbirds

Baked in a pie

When the pie was opened

The birds began to sing

Wasn’t that a dainty dish

To set before a king!

I thought these photos were great – the beauty of nature and the artistry of the camera captured a “Mother Nature Moment” in Central Park.  These photographs were taken near Bethesda Fountain.
