olive experiment

Yesterday I planted a favorite seed - the olive - on one of my terraces in downtown Manhattan. After being smuggled from Portugal, the seed/pit waited and then went through a simulated digestive track of a small mammal over the weekend (soaking in water then sanding and knicking the exterior) then finally placed in some nice warm southern exposed soil. Good luck little buddy! I hope I can provide some positive news on this in the future.


almost spring jams



oh hellebore

I'm exhausted from talking all day and dodging virgin bicyclists - how refreshing to see these Hellebores on my way home (on Hoyt Street in Brooklyn). Let the sun shineth upon us!
