August continues to be more kind to us than July was. There have been many mild days, perfect for meeting friends in cafe gardens, visiting farmers markets, and just taking long walks.
Some New York towers are covered in mirrored glass. These facades come into their own relationships with the sky on bright days when breezes keep the clouds moving.
I actually prefer the intricately decorated facades of older buildings, such as this beauty in my neighborhood.
However, what I truly prefer is yet another walk over to Central Park.
I wanted to see what was still abloom over in the Shakespeare Garden. The foliage has gone a bit straggly, but there's still quite a lot of color, too.
As usual, there were only a few other folks strolling through the Garden. I saw several other cameras in use.
Pink, white and green always make a fine combination.
Not all the leaves are green.
Aren't these roses lovely?
I hope that you all will forgive my continuing ignorance. I do not know the name of this pretty little pink flower.
The following photos gives you an idea of the graceful design of the flag stoned pathways that wander through the garden. You can also get a glimpse of the rustic wood fencing.
On the day of my Garden walk, the sky was overcast, but the yellow flowers still showed up brilliantly on their very long stems.
My camera and I were not quick enough to photograph any of the many bees that I saw enjoying their favorite flowers. There were also some lovely varied colored butterflies that seemed quite camera shy.
As I left the Garden, and continued my walk along the western edge of the Lake, I saw evidence of the gradual departure of Summer. These lacy leaves have their own natural beauty.
I hope that you all will enjoy this opportunity to see these city views. As always, thank you so much for your visits and comments.
