⪧ We left our life in New York City to make a new one in Provence ⪦

April 28, 2011

But wait...



Before I go - or went - at this point I am mid-travel, there was this. This is the Conservatory Garden in Central Park (at 106th Street and Fifth Avenue). You must go now. The blossoming will not last. I was furiously riding my bike from work to get home in order to race to the airport and in passing, I couldn't not stop. These gates open onto the most delightful garden - transport you out of New York to European gardens. I could only stop fleetingly and now I'm pining to return, thinking of the path of pink petals and the rest of the gardens (it is pretty extensive) that I didn't get to witness.








(Ignore the lady on the bench's little sneer).

don't you know adults aren't supposed to get on their knees on the sidewalk to take pictures of fallen petals. let alone notice them at all...
love that sneer.
