It's been a particularly brutal winter here in the northeast. Does anybody else feel like Mother Nature declared "another week, another snowstorm," as her 2015 resolution? I, too, love the romance of a December snowfall and the first few snow days of the year always feel like a special treat, giving you an excuse to stay in your pajamas 'til noon. But the billionth grey day in a row, the endless icy snow banks, and the sludgy NYC sidewalks have left me more excited for Spring than I can remember having been in years.
Finally, last weekend, the temperature crept above freezing and me and my family leapt at the chance to spend the day among flowers! We visited Hick's Nurseries in Westbury for their annual Spring Flower and Garden Show. With my favorite model Dylan in tow (you may recognize his adorable smile from past blog posts or my Facebook page), and with such a nasty winter under our belts, the flowers and springtime cheer felt more marvelous than ever. I think lot of locals had the same idea--it was great to see so many other photographers at the show, snapping the flora from their own points of view.
Oh, yeah! And there were bunnies. Nothing says hang in there, Spring is just around the corner quite like a live Easter Bunny!
