Mulchfest 2016

It's no secret, I'm a big fan of Mulchfest.  The fresh evergreen smell wafts around Tompkins Square for weeks afterwards and I just can't get enough of it.

What mortal can resist the siren song of the wood chipper?



I didn't notice until I viewed the video later, but Christo the red-tailed hawk can be seen in the upper left of the frame, just above the silver pipe on the chipper.  He is perched on a branch just above the nest he and Dora constructed in October.

The chipper's gift:

This pile smells absolutely divine. 

It lures everyone into  its embrace, as seen here in a photo taken two years ago.  I wanted to join her, but someone had to hold the camera.
