Central Park 4/16/12

Spiraea prunifolia
Amelenchier tree
Bluebells and Young Fern in The Rambles
Silverbell Tree (Halesia Monticola)

Wandering with my camera through the Central Park last week before the heavy rains passed through I was lucky to find blossoming trees which caught my fancy and were unfamiliar to me like the Silverbell Tree and the Amachelier Tree which was at the end of it's blooming cycle with it's rust leaves and tiny wistful Magnolia-like blossoms.  The park's inhabitants were also out and placing themselves in plain sight. I spotted a cardinal in Strawberry fields and the usual suspects through the Rambles and the pond.
