Autumn in Central Park

The first week in November is always my favorite for looking at the leaves in Central Park. Though a lot are already on the ground, the colors of those remaining on their trees are the prettiest. Yesterday JD and I went up to the top of Central Park to take in the leaves and visit the Harlem Meer and Conservatory Garden, an area of the park I had never been to. We've been trying to visit different parts of the park instead of going to the same spots over and over again. I don't know why this keeps happening, but every single time I go uptown the weather turns miserable. It doesn't matter seem to matter how far north I go, once I leave the village the sun disappears. We came up the stairs and out of the subway at 110th Street to dark gray clouds looming overhead with no end in sight. Just as we reached the garden a light rain started to fall. It followed us down to the eighties where we exited the park in search of lunch. But we enjoyed our afternoon regardless of the rainclouds.

Saturday is a story for another day.
