Good evening from New York on the night when a strawberry full moon will rise in an hour or so.
I bought these and some more strawberries at the farmers market and have enjoyed this collection with heavy cream for dessert tonight.
It's been a tough time recently, and I have decided to keep the details to myself. Instead, let me show you a few other finds from the farmers market.
Taking another look at these photographs that I took last week reminds me of the beauty that arrives with every day.
Here is another reminder.
The next photograph is a huge bundle of chamomile flowers. I have some chamomile tea bags in a tin in my kitchen.
It's a treat to help yourself to some sugar snap peas that were picked earlier that very day.
A complete change of topic with the next photograph from a door over on the Upper East Side. The door knocker is similar to one that Tom Stevenson recently saw in Spain.
This is a tiny construction site of a white and lavender cardi being knit for a friend's soon to arrive baby. Bamboo needles. Postcard in the background of a Scandinavian wooden toy I saw in an exhibit months ago.
Reading a variety of books is another way for me to take my mind off worrisome current goings on. Dark Money can tell you about the Koch brothers, and more.
John Claridge's wonderful photographic essay on London's East End is a book whose publication I helped to underwrite. It's a book well worth looking at.
If the countryside is more your thing, as it is in my dreams, I would recommend to you, The Running Hare.
This is not a well thought out or written post, but I just wanted to take time to post something to say hello to you all. I really appreciate your visits to my blogs and your comments.
