This beautiful sculpture by Lionel Smit is in New York just until April as part of the Art in the Parks program (read all about it at this site here). I know this photo makes it look like it’s not in much of a park, which is kind of true … it’s in a very small park right next to Union Square that occupies the triangle where Park Avenue splits into Lafayette and 4th Avenue at both of their intersections with 14th Street. There are trees just a bit to the right of the sculpture!
Garden of paradise scarf … LOVE these colors together! Also: photo taken inside without natural lighting — a sign of another busy day!
Since I first posted on this construction site (here), a gigantic hole has been dug in the ground, and this drill is taking it even deeper. That aside, it’s also quite a nice bright yellow!
New food truck on the block! Actually, they’ve been a bit sparse so far this fall … it could be because there’s a lot of street work going on in the neighborhood: e.g. scroll down in this post here.
… and so green! It won’t be long before the leaves start turning colors and falling off all these trees. This will be a “before” picture … stay tuned!
Yellows and oranges that are also fun souvenirs: tray actually purchased in Siena, match box and paper weight Christmas gifts, Die Walküre ticket stub from August of 2013, train and Metro tickets from trip to France last fall, pencils from C. W. Pencil Enterprise (read all about it here) … and more!
… white cosmos! To vary cosmos season a little! Cosmos are such wonderful flowers as far as cut flowers go: they’re so bright and cheery (though these white ones are a little more subdued), and they last quite a few days (if a person changes the water every other day)!
