Rockefeller Center in the Spring



When I think of decorations for Rockefeller Center, my thoughts turn to Christmas and the magnificent Christmas tree that graces the Plaza. But every season has magic, and Rockefeller Center in the spring is no less lovely. The fountains were turned into tributes to spring and I loved the giant Faberge eggs.

I am a fan of topiary and this joyous bunny quickly joined my top ten list. 30 Rockefeller Plaza -- the NBC headquarters -- is directly behind the bunny.
 
The hats weren't limited to Fifth Avenue. This was one of my favorite floral bonnets. 

The Easter Bunny wasn't the only animal buddy that took part in the festivities. A very elegant participant was Kimba, the Chihuahua. I googled Kimba -- I didn't think I was the only person who thought her photogenic -- and there were a number of entries.  I'm pleased she took a moment toose for Buttecupland.  
 
 
Yes, there's the Easter Bunny, the Easter Chihuahua, and our friend, Pepe, the Easter Monkee. He looks dapper in his bunny ears -- a gift from one of his admirers -- and is enjoying them so much he is still wearing them. I think he'll change into his baseball uniform next week to celebrate Opening Day.  

I'm getting ready for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, which starts this Friday, April 1. Actually, getting ready for the challenge isn't too different from my regular life, which is doing things in Manhattan and drinking coffee. Today I spent a very nice day in Brooklyn -- need to expand my horizons -- drinking coffee, walking and visiting with a friend.  I drank some excellent coffee, took pictures and did a little shopping. I'm not sure if I had the best coffee in New York City, but it was good.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care.

I visited NY and Rockefeller Center a few years ago during this time. As your pictures showed, it was glorious.

Good luck with the challenge. I will be following your posts.

Kimba, the Chihuahua was too cute for words. Though Pepe gave her some competition. Those ears were too sweet.

Thanks for the interesting post. Here in MN, I don't much hear about Rockefeller Center until Christmas-time and the tree lighting. Fun to see it in a different light.
