5th avenue.

May 6, 2009
i’d be lying if i said that i didn’t miss new york. but when may rolls around and the wildflowers begin to bloom around this street sign in wilmington, i have to say that i’m pretty darn happy here too. you just don’t see too many sights like this in manhattan.
{photo by me, flowers by little old lady down the street who plants wildflower seeds with abandon every spring. my heroine}.

    wow is that queen anne’s lace blooming already? i’m jealous! i found flowers in nyc today….plants are for sale now everywhere you look at the farmers market. i started wanting to buy some to grow on my balcony and then started to wish i had a yard so i could grow a whole garden. 🙁
