Flowers of New York City

Was wanting to post photographs of flowers I took on my recent visit to New York City. Then it seemed weird because who thinks of flowers when they think of the city?

To be honest, I don’t recall seeing as many in the past (when I lived there) as during this visit. Why is that? My thoughts are a. that there IS more attention being paid toward NYC outdoor spaces these days and b. I am more observant than I was back then. Both lovely reasons!

Then I read that yesterday was National Flower day. (However, when I checked today, I saw that one source said that this was true, another said, no it’s in March; so who knows?) Below are ten of what I think are the best photos. Hope you enjoy them!

The yellow flower to the top left – maybe 6″ to 8″ across in reality – is my personal fave. I’d love to read what yours is in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by,
