Spring has sprung.

Today, when I pushed open the gate to take Griffin for a walk, I spotted these: my first spring crocus! And next, in the middle of the parking lot at work, this remarkably resilient shrub was reaching to the sky with her budded branches. How can you not love a day like this?

Let your imagination grow.

My daughter is attending the School of Visual Arts in NYC, and, of course I'm a proud parent. I love it when she sends me scans of her work, like this recent assignment for one of her drawing classes. The assignment: illustrate a garden from your imagination. I especially love the cactus in a teacup.
