  5. I'm more of a fan of "A Little Princess", though I like "A Secret Garden" as well. Who knew it was in NYC? ;-)

  7. 'The Secret Garden' is a special read - hope to share it with my grandchildren someday. I love the pic of the tiny bird - quite sweet.

  14. Beautiful captures.

    Central Park is one place I have only very briefly visited and it was back in late 2005 when Gareth was working in Manhattan. I was hugely pregnant with Gaby and had taken the train in to the city to have lunch with him and we took a cab to the park. We didn't have much time and that saddened me as there is so much to explore. Something tells me one could spend a month there, exploring and still not see everything.

    One of these days I am going to feel well enough again, and confident enough to go back there.

  17. So enchanting. I've never made it to Central Park in my handful-ish visits to NYC. This alone would make me go there.
