But since this is my blog, and I can do what I want . . .
A few more photos, taken in Central Park on a lovely day in March.
I love the little flower carvings along this weathered bench.
I’ve always wanted to have one of these caricature portraits of myself.
I’m kidding. Really. Why would I want a picture of myself with all my flaws exaggerated? I don’t like these.
This is the Naumburg Bandshell, presented to the city in 1923. The Naumburg Orchestral Concerts have been held here since 1905.
I read that they are the oldest concert series of their kind in the entire United States.
On this beautiful day, a man was teaching a little girl how to create a giant bubble. He told the crowd that it was just a mixture of dishwashing liquid and water.
She has got quite the giant bubble going on here.
Note the snow that is still piled up.
This is part of the Bethesda Terrace. Daryl pointed out the areas of interest. She’s such a good tour guide.
The focal point of the terrace is the Bethesda Fountain. I’d love to see this when it’s working and full of water.
The 26-foot high fountain is one of the largest in NY. It’s a neoclassical sculpture and is also known as the Angel of Waters. She stands above four small cherubim who represent peace, purity, temperance, and health.
I know you love learning these things.
A carriage ride seems like a fun way to get one from place to another in the park.
I can’t ever see myself taking a carriage ride, though.
And finally, back at Belvedere Castle, I found this little dragon carving above the exit door. My youngest son would have loved this place when he was a child. He’s been on my mind a lot lately. (It’s my eldest son who lives in the city).

George says hello. He’s driving my husband nuts with his nighttime antics. More on that later.As always, I thank everyone for visiting my little space in the world here. It is such a pleasure to see each and every one of you. Well, except for the comment trolls I have to keep deleting. But we can’t have everything, can we?
