down by the river.

the rain is here to stay, it seems, but i don't really mind. rainfall does wonderful things...it freshens 
the air and makes the flowers pop, and i sleep best to the sound of raindrops on my window.

 a walk down by the hudson during the one afternoon this week that the rain let up revealed to 
me riverside park in the spring. with curvy paths, stone steps, and lush gardens, it just might be
 the city's best kept secret.

    And are those "bleeding hearts"? .. I've always wanted to have some in my backyard.. it's the teen angst thing inside me from 7th grade.

  7. Alexa, you have such a talent for appreciating beautiful things. I'm sure if I'd walked down the same path you had I would have seen things much differently. You have a beautiful perspective and I love seeing the world through your pictures!
