a cinco-full of blooms

My daily stroll on May 5, 2020 did not include cuing up for Mexican food (and being dispersed by law enforcement). It did include snapping lots of photos of pretty flowers, especially tulips, and others blooms and blossoms, including comely trees.

IMG_1418-001My walk headed south on Washington Avenue from Cucumber Street, passing the County Historical Society. Then up Union Street, with a serious stop at First Reformed Church’s customary bordered sidewalk entry. (This year the orange and yellow tulips were quite lovely, but short. Explanation?)

Crossing Erie Boulevard, I stopped to admire the plantings in front of the Centre Street Pub, at Broadway, as I often do. Then, headed over to capture the sole remaining City Hall cherry blossom tree (ironically, weeping), and across the Jay Street Pedestrian Mall, westerly up State Street, and back to Cucumber Alley, before remembering I really wanted to see the flower gardens on the west end of Riverside Park.


The next set of tiled mosaics highlights some of my favorite tree shots from May 5th. After it, the Slideshow has scores of photos in the order they were taken on my stroll.
