A ride to Durand Eastman Park...(pics)
The weather turned nice for a spell and I had the opportunity to get in a nice ride. The flowering trees and early Spring flowers are in bloom along the Lake Ontario shores so I included Durand Eastman Park in the ride. I opted not to write about the history of this venerable old Rochester park and just post some pictures.
I entered the park from the old Wisner Rd. entrance which has been closed to cars for years. This entrance put me very close to the Magnolias and Daffodils that I was hoping to catch in bloom.
I was very fortunate.
Now on to the Daffodil plantings which are scattered over several acres in this fruiticetum.
I failed at capturing an image that portrays the vast expanse of the daffodil plantings. There are acres of them. It appears that deer don't particularly like to eat them either.
A "Picture perfect day".
The ride ended up being just shy of 50 miles but the best part was the park.
