April showers, April flowers

On my short walk home from work earlier this evening, the light rain did not prevent me from taking photos of the lovely spring flowers along the way. These photos were taken near the entrance to the New York Presbyterian Hospital/Cornell Medical Center, in front of one of the apartment buildings on York Avenue, and in my apartment building's courtyard. The short life span of the blooms of tulips, magnolia, hyacinths and daffodils reminds us of the transient nature of life and the lesson of enjoying the moment. Maybe that's why I enjoy capturing their beauty in pictures...they last longer.
