happy may day


























It was a glorious May Day here in Brooklyn...sun was shining, birds were singing...and the faint scent of urine wafted up off the hot sidewalks. sigh. hey, two out of three ain't bad.

I hit the Gowanus Nursery to plant out another couple containers in my backyard (SO proud of myself that I am not buying more than my pot capacity!). It was a really charming, albeit small, garden center. One of those whose appeal lies more in charming vignettes, unusual plants, and interesting objects than row upon row of impatiens and geraniums. You'll have to check out http://365daysinmyhouse.blogspot.com/ tomorrow to see the results of today's plant shopping.

After the nursery I drove around Gowanus a little bit...am KICKING myself that I did not slam on the brakes when I saw a group of people, literally about to Dance Around the Maypole at a community garden. By the time I circled the block (not always an easy feat in Brooklyn), they were done, and the photo opp missed. Sigh. I *did* see this charming community garden at Summit St & Columbia Ave with some turquoise chairs that looked particularly inviting.
