Satellite image of Green-wood Cemetery from Google Maps
I had not realized until I really looked at this satellite image that Green-wood, above left, is about as big as Prospect Park, right. Click on the link above to see them in relation to each other. Once you are within its unexpected hills, and endless views of more hills, and and more trees, you feel as though you have landed somewhere very green and quite foreign.
Last weekend we spotted pink carpets of persicaria.
Just a few trees had started to turn.
There were the mushrooms, of course.
And then there were the parrots.
Forgive the poor-quality up-feather pictures but I could not resist. Parrots in Brooklyn.
