It’s that very special time of the year when almost everything in your garden or the Conservatory Gardens is in bloom.  True we’ve already gloried at those burst of yellow from daffodils and forsythia marking the end of winter and we’ve enjoyed the tulips with their heads bobbing in the breeze and have even said farewell to the Lilies of the Valley last month.

But June, omg, June is just a cacophony of color and sweet smelling flowers and bushes.  Think about all the blooms in June;  Roses, Petunias, Pansies, Hydrangeas, Coral Bells, Sweet William, Azaelas, Geraniums and lots, lots more.  So it’s in the gardens of New York City, that our friend and photographer Murray has been heading with his camera.  The flowers are playing second fiddle this year to the insects who frequent them, but nonetheless, you can’t have one without the other. And having said that, I do have some great flower photos to share with you, maybe tomorrow.

Because it’s almost Valentine’s Day and what could be more appropriate than the RED the universal color for a heart!  Not to mention that February is American Heart Month so for the next couple of weeks, you can expect RED to be popping up here and there.
