Early Spring on East 87th Street
So these are the two lovely brownstones I mentioned before that are right across the street from my building. If you look at the green ivy in the middle, go to the right and you can make out that there are dead, well dormant for now, vines that go up the length of the building. Soon it will sprout leaves and then some time in May the wisteria flowers will bloom and that whole vine will be this spectacular mass of purple flowers. It's really amazing.
A few years ago, the owners of the building cut down the whole vine down to its stump and I thought that might be the end of it, but I guess wisteria is a fast-growing plant.
