Aida likes, no, expects walks. Preferably more than one each day. It’s easy to accommodate this demand that has intensified at the perfect time - Spring. The past four weekends we’ve explored Greenwood Cemetery (first visit when my Mom was here). Walking through the sloping terrain, views include the Manhattan skyline, ornate headstones, mausoleums, and countless trees that are bursting with blossoms. What is most special is how peaceful this 175 years old cemetery is - the silence only diverted by bird watchers and an occasional vehicle.
First visit to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, just a 30 minute walk via Prospect Park. Excursion & abundant blossoms enjoyed with our lovely neighbors, Amber & Alastair. The tree fort (image 3) is new, constructed from fallen trees after Hurricane Sandy.
I will miss the easy glimpses of blue jays, cardinals and friends. But early signs point to spring being just spectacular in Prospect Park.
Spring. Marking 20 weeks with sweet Aida (it’s really true: just keeps getting better!).
Four months. And such a delight!
Snow! At long last, sledders and igloo-makers of Prospect Park have something to work with.

Just a dusting of snow - Morning walk in Prospect Park.
