Museum Hopping

After eleven years living in New York, I finally made it to The Cloisters, The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s museum and gardens devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. It was a beautiful Spring day and the violets and bleeding hearts were in full bloom. What a delight to see the earth waking up from a long, cold winter. The structures awash in history perched above the Hudson River are the perfect escape from the bustle of the city. I look forward to seeing the bounty the gardens have to offer throughout the year. And it won’t take another eleven to return.IMG_3216IMG_3220IMG_3221IMG_3223IMG_3225IMG_3232IMG_3233IMG_3234IMG_3236IMG_3238IMG_3239IMG_3240Below photo I took at the MET. I love the giant flower and the flowing fabric carved in stone.IMG_7437Photography Beth Horta for Sweet Sabelle.
