These photos are of a particular tree at Union Square as it came into bloom beginning in late March; as I type on May 8th (Happy Birthday Mike!), the blossoms have all given way to luxurious big green leaves . . .
Interestingly, each of these was taken on a different device: the top one on an “iTouch,” the second on a phone, and the third on an actual camera!
Coming soon: full report on the 5-Boro bike ride!
