Flora, in Roman mythology, was the goddess of flowering plants.

Central Park, on her behalf, has exploded in Technicolor.




Standing on an Olmstead bridge   images-5(who along with Calvert Vaux, designed the park), I watch in awe while she sows her wild oats.

Trees are plush with pinks and purples, yellows and reds surrounded by Irish green.images-4

Birds sit sentry as squirrels scoot past beckoning like furry hosts...hi there, may I take your coat?  images How nice of you to visit.images-1 Please, come see the view.images-2.

I will enjoy this season before nature strips her closets clean, like all women do who have the room.

The trees bare, the grass a barren brown, while I, awaiting spring, shiver silently in her stead.



About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

    I love seeing the mountains blanketed in color. Our trees are already past their prime. Enjoy the show while it lasts.

    Beautiful post! I just did one on Nature’s Beauty too – hard to imagine Central Park in the Fall.

  3. It’s been a stunning fall here too. Unseasonably warm too. I’m good with all that.

    I just commented to someone about this unusual warm weather we are having. Beautiful pictures of the park Susannah. I’m glad Foster Kitty is no where near those squirrels! ~Elle
