These are taken at the park across the street from me. we are on one of the hills that has a view down and across to Manhattan. We can, on a clear day see New Jersey, from Hoboken to Bayonne.

The cat is my Yodel. Not a very good/clear picture of him, but the torpor is accurate.

Working on the next piece of my Marlowe story. Should maybe be up tonight.

My goodness Yodel is a big boy! Glad to see he is "helping" with the next instalment of your Marlowe story :P

The park looks lovely, it's so open and the view is spectacular!

Oh he is such a help. He loves to lie on the keyboard. He sits on stacks of books, he puts pens under chairs for me, and he yells. (He is part siamese, and has a loud voice and the desire to yowl. These are siamese cat things.

Nice pictures! You are fortunate to have such nice park very near to your home. And your Yodel looks fluffy and cute X)

Yodel is very fluffy. His fluff gets everywhere.

Excellent shots. Your Yodel is obviously in love with Marlowe too, huh? :) Is the last pic upside down? It's lovely anyway. Always interesting to see how the world looks like in other places at the same time of year.

I am not sure if it is upside down, or just a droopy flower. Yodel is a great help with my research. He holds the keyboard down for me.

Great pictures! It looks spectacular. I live in a medieval city, which I admit has its perks, but I wish we had more parks over here. There's something very relaxing about parks which you can't find in a city centre, no matter how pretty the buildings might be.

Yes, I love the park. We walk our dog there every day, and it really functions as a backyard for us. When the weather is good the park is crowded with people, very friendly place.

It must be amazing to live in a medieval city though-- maybe someday I will be able to visit such a place.

I have only been to one medieval city - Tallinn, Estonia - but it was lovely. There were cobblestones and a costumed procession and jousting on the green outside the walls. My husband was in the newer part of Tallinn for a business meeting, and I wandered the old city with my six-month-old in a front pack and my 2 1/2-year old bumping over the cobblestones in an umbrella stroller. We got those kids to Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Africa, and New Zealand - accompanying my husband's business trips - all before Child #2 was a year old. Those were our palmy days. Child #3 slowed us down considerably. Between Child #4, school for the older kids, and economics, my traveling with the kids has mostly wound down to a stop. But we have some lovely memories. I would love to take the kids through Europe when they are old enough to A) walk the whole day B) schlep their own luggage and C) appreciate the history, architecture, etc. Maybe in 5-10 years. I sincerely hope by then we will be able to afford it again.

KITTEH! And rosa rugosa. So many of those grow along the coast in Maine. I have always been tempted to go out harvesting the enormous rose hips.
