Caroline and Myself preparing to take Manhattan…..
I took so many photos, I’d like to beak it up and post them over the course of a few days and by theme so you can enjoy them in small bites.
I think I’d like to start with photos of one of my favorite things about Manhattan-the flower stands outside the corner shops. These are absolutely lovely and my daughter was so good to spot them and snap glorious photos of them each time we encountered one.
There’s no place like New York, but also, there’s no place like home!
I was so taken with this huge advertisement on the side of a brick building. What the heck is the message here? Quit the crack habit and throw it in the sewers so the the rats can eat it? I don’t know, but I love the illustration all the same.
One of the stops on our subway ride.
The very old, weathered lions that guard the NYC public library.
Just next door, Bryant Park. This is the outside of the library, covered in ivy. This is a beautiful, happy place to sit and have a quick rest, or read a book. It’s right in the center of all the hussle bussle.
Floral eye candy that is irresistable. If I lived in NYC, I’d have to grab one of these bouquets a couple times a week to make my table happy.
That’s me, taking in the fragrance of these gorgeous arrangements.

Hi, Em! Yippeeeeeeee! You're back! I've missed you, missed you, missed you! I'm SO glad you had a blast! I knew you would! Love the photos! That library is gorgeous. I'd be there so much they'd think I was a stalker! And the flowers – wow! I am conjuring up MY idea of the beautiful scents! Making us wait for all the pictures, huh? You tease! LOL! I will SO be back each day to look for more photos! Hope there are some of you & 'Becca together!
