Two more Green Men

Today I walked west on 82nd Street from 1st Ave. I was delighted to find two more buildings that have stone-carved images of the Green Man enshrined on them:

The Green Man may sometimes look stern, but he is a great friend as well as being a sort of boss to all gardeners and naturalists. He is the power of nature, the power of growing green things. He is at his strongest in the spring and fall. He is at home everywhere. Nothing can keep nature down.

All the best,

Susan
