We had a really great day yesterday….in my opinion, the best that NYC has to offer…
Central Park birding…eating and a really terrific show.
We wanted to take a walk in Central Park and happened upon many birders in the Ramble area….all staring at a Chuck Wills widow…a rare bird here.
We didn’t have our binoculars but the birds that we saw were all down low. Canada Warbler, Ovenbird, Black throated blue warbler, Common Yellow throat, Wilson’s Warbler, Black and White Warbler, Magnolia Warbler, Verey, Wood thrush, Catbirds, Robins, Cardinals and a few others. Boy did we wish we had our Binos.
We left the birdy area and headed back into town for dinner before our 8pm show.
Dinner was sooooo yummy…..We went to Blossom. Jeff, Samarrah and I all ordered the same entree. Sietan cutlets encrusted with rosemary and nuts pan fried with a garlic cream sauce and cranberries, served with whipped cauliflower and sauteed spinach with garlic. Desert was the most wonderful tofu cheesecake I have had, with a strawberry sauce.
I cant tell u how delicious it was…I am dreaming about it now….it is not an inexpensive restaurant. I think our entrees were 21 dollars each, well worth it for a special treat.
We topped of the night by seeing Spamalot…..it was excellent…hysterical and just plan fun.
Go see it if you get a chance….
I cryed because it was just soooo good.
What a fun day.

More photos of our walk in the gardens…..I forgot to mention that this is prime migration time for birds and without our binoculars we saw alot of great birds.
Jeff, Samarrah and I had a Lovely day at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens….
the weather was perfect…warm and sunny. The gardens were in full spring bloom…the smell of the wisteria and lilacs was so wonderful….
It was a pleasant relaxing day in the city…
I will add more pictures and a video if i have time tomorrow…
And its true….Today I turn 52…Yikes…
I am going to get a massage later today…and for my birthday present I have pre-ordered Wii Fit
(thanks Tammy for taking care of that for me)
Jeff and I will also be going out to dinner with Jim, a friend who is visiting from Oregon.
Thanks mom and dad for the target gift card…and thanks Tammy and Joe for the email card…it was really cute and so fitting….
Adele brought over a nice concrete garden cat for my birthday this morning….it looks like my sweet little noblet….I put him here in the garden so i can look at him whenever I am here.
That’s all for now….
Happy birthday Me…
