Yesterday felt summery in New York in that heavy air kind of style that says winter is officially over. You know, in case the cherry blossoms didn’t convince you.
We did the only reasonable thing to do in this season and ate a picnic dinner outside with friends, but first we took a family ramble along The High Line, which is beautiful in all seasons but especially so right now with its flush of pink and purple. That Piet Oudolf really gets it right with all of the wild looking greens poking up everywhere. Thankfully, Faye was kind enough to leave all of those tempting grasses intact for fellow visitors.
Can you imagine living right there? People watching for days!
Contemplative plant gazers.
Amethyst Falls American Wistera (I think!) Baptisia ‘Purple Smoke’—a cross between Baptisia australis and Baptisia alba!
Old tracks, new plants.
Papa and babe.
Lots of “walking” to be done.
In case you’re in the neighborhood: The High Line

In case you’re curious:
– The hat that I’m wearing in these photos was made especially for me by Brooklyn milliner Brookes Boswell, whose shoebox studio I had the great pleasure of visiting a few weeks ago. This exact style is coming out in a collection later this year, but you can browse all of her beauties here. Mine’s made of Panama straw.
– Faye’s blooms.
