"5 o'clock shadow"

With the coming of spring,
I noticed a certain carelessness in the grooming...
Avec la venue du Printemps,
J'ai remarqué un certain laisser aller dans le rasage!!!

Amsterdam Avenue and 82nd st, West end Avenue, West Side.

After a long winter everyone gets alittle unkempt! This made me laugh! Beautiful buildings.

That first building is absolutely amazing! It looks like it has a garland! I love vine-covered walls so I like the second building. Everything's so lush!

il est un spectacle fantastique, même si je ne réussis à ne pas imaginer ..la grandeur des racines!

la première est magnifique, on dirait une guirlande de printemps. Impressionnant, même moi quand je me laisse aller, ma barbe n'est pas aussi grosse ;o)

Love those brownstones. I suspect the gardening might be hard to keep up with at the beginning of the growing season?

C'est simplement incroyable !!

La nature est incroyable elle arrive à se développer dans un lieu qui a priori lui est hostile. ^_^

These are such beautiful buildings, shaved or unshaven! I remember walking here the last time I was in NYC.

Tash May 12, 2009 at 5:15 AM  

I can't believe these! I've never seen anything like it - the 1st one is hillarious and the 2nd is again unbelievable. Well done, M-N!
I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

C'est la maison de Barbe-Bleue, euh... Barbe-Verte? J'adore, on devrait faire pousser des plantes sur tous les bâtiments laids!

Si c'est une glycine sur la première photo, elle est énorme. Même s'il y en a deux, elles le sont.

In the first shot that building seemed to have a necklace!
Cool post!So different!

LOL !!! Excellent. On dirait presque Londres sur les maisons de la première photo !

Virginia May 12, 2009 at 9:17 AM  

You must tell us about the top photo! Is that wisteria or what??? Amazing photos, both of them!

génial, bien vu

Jacob May 12, 2009 at 6:32 PM  

I'm still laughing! What a great eye you have!

Not so much a five-o'clock shadow, though as some full beards and a goatee!

Clueless in Boston May 12, 2009 at 10:25 PM  

I like them shaved myself; though the goatee on the first is kind of funny looking.

gogouci May 13, 2009 at 1:15 AM  

Too funny. Perfect pics for the title.

Sur la photo du dessus cela fait un peu comme mon Pearl Bush (Exochorda) qui déborde largement chez les voisins, attiré par le soleil (orientation sud-ouest pour eux et de mon coté nord-est. Comment lutter), ils ne s'en plaignent pas d'ailleurs.
J'aime bien quand la nature prend ses aises cependant une petite tonte ou taille ne ferait pas de mal.

JM May 13, 2009 at 9:18 AM  

Amazing façades! The 1st shot is absolutely gorgeous and I think I've never seen such a high vine as in the 2nd! Wow!

namaki May 13, 2009 at 6:40 PM  

vraiment superbes !!! et j'adore ta légende !!!

PJ May 13, 2009 at 8:41 PM  

I wonder how long it has taken for this to grow? It's beautiful and creates a vision of verdancy that I find enchanting.

Squirrel May 14, 2009 at 11:04 AM  

Very hairy! very amusing! very beautiful and lush.

Jilly May 15, 2009 at 2:38 AM  

Two fabulously extraordinary climbers. How absolutely marvellous. I bet they hide some wildlife too. Super photos.

I have veneration for your large-scale aptitude for photographie. There must be much more behind your photo-creativity.
