YET ANOTHER VISIT TO CP's CONSERVATORY GARDENS! (Sunday's Sequel)
Yesterday during my walk in Central Park, I paid a visit to The Conservatory Gardens, a place I have not been to since this past summer (July 20th). My first time visiting them was May 25th, 2019.
In my posting re my May visit to this place, I discussed the garden sculpture and fountain (seen in the image directly above) which honors the children’s book author Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett.
During that visit I encountered a Polygonia interrogationis (AKA Questionmark Butterfly), but I did not see any butterflies there yesterday, however, I did see what appeared to be tropical fish swimming in the base of the sculpture/fountain.
They can be seen in the next series of photographs, some of which include a couple of lovely water lilies who "reside" there.
I had hoped to see some birds at The Conservatory Gardens, but I didn't see one avian creature, although I could hear them singing and why shouldn't they be, given there beautiful flora, which is still thriving there, as evidenced in the following photos that represent a small portion of what is still in bloom.
I will confess that although I did not see birds at The Conservatory Gardens, I did see a very entertaining cormorant within Turtle Pond.
I plan to post something about my encounter this Tuesday, so please stay tuned! Meanwhile, the images below are a sneak preview of the story I will publish here on Tuesday for my 147th segment of Tuesday's Truths!
