Late Winter Blooms at Floyd Bennett Field

Looking up at a Red Maple, Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn, NYC

A fierce wind was whipping as usual for this time of year and it was probably 5 to 10 degrees cooler than inland, but a fine day for weeding, fertilizing and planting some Lathyrus odoratus, (Sweet Pea Vine) I hope. It was certainly a good day to check out the bloomers in the last days of winter. Up in the sky the Red Maple was blooming and down at the ground some crocuses from Joe's garden. All over there were bulbs in bloom and familiar faces to greet again after a long winter. It's good to be back.
