garden : vegetables



the new york botanical garden currently has a really interesting edible garden display. i've never seen pineapples outside a grocery store and the basket in the last photo reminds me of a hula skirt. these photos were taken with the yashica 35mm film camera i received last year and were the first batch to be successfully developed.

i really like the white border on the prints i purchase and was going to only use it on my film photos, but i kind of like it. it's another step and slows me down, but i think it will force me to be a better editor. let me know what you think. have a nice weekend!

xo, cindy

ps at 2:00 pm yesterday scott took up residence in the 'doghouse'. he is in very big trouble for not doing something he offered to do and subsequently nearly gave me a heart attack. it could be a very long weekend for him as there's no air conditioning in the doghouse or other nice things like running water, refrigeration, cable, me. pray for him ;).

Nice shots! I love the white border because it harkens back to my youth! Glad to know I'm not the only one who had a dog house built, not for my dogs, but for those special times when Chef Stu needs to reflect. ;)

oh wow, that garden is fantastic. The pineapples are especially great.

I hope you have a great Friday and an excellent weekend!

How neat, I've never seen a pineapple in habitat either. Poor Scott, I hope he makes up for his dog-house-inducing action!

Nice photos! As for Scott I'm sure he is really sorry and will be making it up to you. I'd say meet him half way by giving him the name of your favorite restaurant, flower and wine. Enjoy my friend and have a golden one! xoxo

i love pretty edible gardens!

and that you have a fabulous one!!

cindy* i know what you mean. the 'edible garden' phrase must have taken a bunch of marketing people forever to invent ;). what about good 'ol 'vegetable garden'?

i'm sure scott will get a reprieve, but it's not nice to say you're going to call to say you're ok, then don't and i can't reach you!

Cindy,
I love the pics! Isn't it amazing to experience food in its natural habitat?
*) And boy can I relate to the dog-house situation-- BK has been there for not calling during long trips too!
Hope you have a sweet weekend!
