a pocket full of posies

Central Park (North Garden) / New York, New York
It's a beautiful Labor Day weekend in New York - perfect weather for an unofficial end of summer picnic. We have three little nieces (his, not mine) arriving this afternoon and have planned for a picnic in Central Park. While I expect some "ring around the rosie", there will be no rain in the forecast. And reflective of the afternoon, this statue is named "Three Dancing Maidens" and was sculpted in Germany sometime before 1910 and then came to the Garden as a gift of the Samuel Untermeyer Family in 1947.
