the lenten rose


Simply couldn't resist sharing these pictures from the garden today. I stopped by after leaving the kitchen, when the early evening was all grey and misty. The island of Manhattan always feels like a boat to me when the air is like that.

I love unlocking the heavy gate and sneaking into the safety of the garden, especially when no one else is around. I feel like Mary in the Secret Garden. As the Vernal Equinox approaches, (March 2oth) I find that there is something new blooming every day.

Today, the quiet beauty of the lenten rose took me in, with its shadowy blush and shy, downcast gaze.
