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.
Below photo I took at the MET. I love the giant flower and the flowing fabric carved in stone.

Beth, your post will push The Cloisters to the top of my ‘must visit’ list next trip to NYC. Very nice!
