THE CONSERVATORY GARDEN: ALLIUMS LIKE BALLERINAS

DSC00062With tulips no longer in the limelight, bright purple and pink alliums–standing tall and proud, posed like slender ballerinas–are having their day in the sun all around the northern gardens of the always extraordinary Conservatory Garden at 105th and Fifth Avenue.

Yesterday in the late afternoon I had fun photographing them at various stages, from tentative blooms to those getting ready to take their final bows.

    Fine photography and it’s NOT the camera . . . !
