Look what's in (very full) bloom
in the garden right now—
so beautiful!

Moving in

 . . . on the Upper East Side, just down the block
from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I didn't see these folks' furniture, but they
had some beautiful mirrors.   And no, I didn't—
it was already (conveniently) uncovered.

Thursday Challenge—"yellow"

I captured this tiny flower
with a close-up lens on my iPhone
(so hard to focus, but lots of fun).

ABC Wednesday—F is for "fairy lights"

Somewhere in the West Village:
I took this shot at the end of February—so if
these started out as a holiday decoration,
I'd like to think that they decided to
keep them up.  Because what's more festive
than fairy lights (at any time of the year)?

Las Bicicletas

That's the name of this art installation by
Gilberto Aceves Navarro.  There are 122 bike
sculptures spread out over 10 public spaces in 
Brooklyn and lower Manhattan this summer.  
The sculptor hopes that we'll visit them all—
by bike, of course (a ten-mile loop).

Canna show you a pretty plant?

I looked for a plant label for this beauty
and couldn't find one.  But I could tell 

by the foliage that's it's a canna cultivar, so
I'm going with 'Orange Bengal Tiger'.

inSPIREd Sunday

This is the church of Santa Maria Assunta,
more commonly called the Gesuiti,
in Venice.  I showed the fa├žade on this post.
But to me the interior is what's special—
the "fabric" (valance, fringe, and tassels too) draped
around this pulpit are all made of marble.
