Christmas in Bryant Park

This is our last seasonal Pink Saturday. Next week we return to pink themes and photos until next December and I am keeping my eyes alert for pretty-in-pink pictures. But as a last farewell to Christmas in New York we're taking a trip to  Bryant Park. The park adjoins the main building of the New York Public Library and is the scene of a wonderful Christmas market. I visited on Friday and knew it would be just the place for our last holiday post.

 
The Christmas tree is large and lovely, but is in the shadow of the skyscrapers surrounding the park. 
 
 
I loved this fun elfin tree in one of the shops, and was very tempted to add an elf to my snowman collection. 
 
 
 The Park was named for William Cullen Bryant, poet and editor of the New York Evening Post, after his death in 1878.

Yesterday we had snow and today was in the fifties and felt like April. Tomorrow promises winter again. I just remember that each day brings us nearer to spring, and that is a very good thing. 
 
As ever thanks for visiting. Take good care and have a great week!

That twilight photo is amazing, Carol!
I'm instinctively drawn to it - but at the same time it makes me want to run home to momma for a steaming mug of tomato soup.

That huge tree is just beautiful. It has turned much colder here with a little snow this morning. Like you I'm trying to remember that each day that passes does make Spring a little closer. Happy Monday !

Your pictures almost make me feel sad that the holidays are over. The keyword here is "almost". I am packing up everything today and hopefully it will all be completed in a day or so - or maybe not.

Gorgeous trees, and I would have been tempted by that elfin tree as well! Weather! It can always be counted on to change! That's the story here.

Wow that is one big tree and so festive looking. Loved those Elves. Elves were popular this year, I bought a couple of them as decorations.
