hello, hello! i hope you all had a lovely weekend and easter if you celebrate. the weather has been beautiful here and we enjoyed a nice family get together. wave hill will be featured on martha stewart today and also here on quaint. most of these photos were taken in their greenhouses and feature the prettiest flowers. enjoy your monday!

xo, cindy

ps i hope all of our friends in southern california are ok after the earthquake, yesterday.

pretty in pink.

sweet rock garden bloom.

gigantic variety of lemon and pocketbook plant.

so tiny.

the vine is incredible.

wave hill has wonderful art programs and is currently displaying knitted hats made by visitors for robyn love’s project, house study/handmade. we mentioned robyn once before with her crocheted water tower cozy. when we visited recently, they were also displaying work from their children's art programs, which must be pretty cool for the kids.
