2012 Hat Lunch AKA Central Park Conservancy 30th Frederick Law Olmstead Awards Luncheon


Usually it is a glorious spring day with the sun showing its light and heat, but it wasn't to be so this past Wednesday, May 2nd. Despite the darkness, the day was beautiful. The gardens and girls did not disappoint.

Great pix. Wonderful overview and particularly liked your Monet analogy. Asian (?) lady in red looked unbelievable, almost otherworldly. Fabulous food. You looked great! Thx.
