a sign of spring

Wes and I drove to Queens on Saturday morning. Corey had called on Wednesday and invited us to come visit, on the spur of the moment.  We were a bit concerned about the weather, but by Saturday morning, it was fine, in fact, very pretty as we traveled the Thruway, as every branch and twig had a covering of snow.

We picked up Corey, Daisy and Desi and drove to Brooklyn to have lunch in Bogota Latin Bistro, a South American restaurant.  We were in time for brunch, but could also order off the lunch menu, which gave us lots of choices.  Wes picked the most interesting dish, French toast stuffed with plantains, which didn’t appeal to me at all, until I tasted it. Yum!  I wanted to suggest trading my fish tacos with him, but knew he wouldn’t and the tacos were equally yummy.  The red cabbage cole slaw that came with my tacos was sweeter than I’m familiar with  and also had coconut as an ingredient.  Again, something unexpected, but tasty.

After lunch, we drove to Prospect Park to walk around the lake, birdwatch (a pair of wood ducks!!) and work off some of our lunch.  There was some snowball throwing involved, wet feet and, of course, Desi had to lie down on the edge of the lake with a big stick and see if he could poke a hole in the ice. (He could)

From a distance, I could see this yellow tree blooming and immediately thought it was forsythia, but looking closer, it wasn’t, but whatever it was, it was blooming and that was wonderful.first grass

This time of year, even the littlest bit of green is noteworthy, so the bits of grass poking up from the dried leaves was a most welcome sight.

After driving back to their apartment, we walked to get dessert–Pictures tomorrow.
