pics : pre-spring garden



Hi Everyone -

This weekend we visited the New York Botanical Garden looking for early signs of spring. Outside of the Conservatory, the only one we found is pictured above. No matter, there's always something interesting and a few of the photos in this group almost seem like creatures from another planet, or inspired by the movie Coraline. I've organized them to flow by color from beige > reddish-pink > pink > purple > green > gray. I hope that works and be warned, I love moss.

We're thinking of Australia today and everyone who is enduring the fast-moving bushfires in Victoria. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

xo, Cindy

These photos are spectacular and hope inducing. We've had a few warm days here, and it really makes me wih for spring. Yes, the fires in Austraila are horrific. My thoughts go there too.

Oooh, the gardens are going to be so pretty in the spring. I feel so bad for all of the people in Australia. We used to have fires every few summers when I lived in Sydney but none were ever as bad as these in Victoria.
