Alma: My Grandma

I called my grandma today and spoke to her for the first time in years. I asked her if she was doing any gardening and she said she has a small 1. This doesn't sound small to me: Collards, turnip, eggplant, tomatoes, okra, squash, green beans. I was like that doesn't sound small.

Here is some photographic stimulation that will hopefully inspire both you the reader and myself to partake in Spring's last dance.

I am going to write a note to myself to visit the Farmer's market this weekend because this pic is from last year and I need some real food in my belly.

Brookly Botanical Gardens

I have been taking a photography course. For my final project I chose the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens emphasizing the Cherry blossoms. Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure:

It is my plan to visit the Gardens during other times of year. I saw some from the 1920's that were taken after snow had fallen of the Japanese Gardens. Beautiful.
