Florist window, Upper East Side of Manhattan
When most of us think of Christmas in New York our thoughts go to Macy's and Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center and the windows on Fifth Avenue. I love the big spectacular decorations, but for me this season is all around, whether it's down the block at the Christmas tree stand or in a shop window that I see while I'm out walking. I saw this window and the one in the picture below while walking on Park Avenue on Friday night. It's a neighborhood florist -- thankful we still have them -- and not famous. But the forest scene in the middle of brick and concrete was a wonderful discovery.
The joys of window shopping
My west side finds are very simple, but I appreciate every simple and pretty note in the otherwise leafless winter landscape. I found this window walking home from the library last week, just a few blocks from home.
I discovered this tree stand on my way to the movies. It's on the very far west side,
not quite a block from the Hudson River.
It's treat time again and we're back at Bouchon Bakery at Columbus Circle. Tonight we have an assortment of yummies. It's a tough choice, but I'm leaning towards an eclair for my virtual treat.
What's your pick? Remember, that there are no calories in virtual treats.
I've been listening to a medley of seasonal music tonight. I've got YouTube in the background on automatic and I've listened to Elvis and Bing Crosby and now Perry Como has just started singing Silver Bells. What a perfect choice for this post.
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a sweet week!
