A Little Hocus Pocus

Autumn Flowers

Autumn Flowers

Sorry for the lack of updates but I've been busy because...I finally moved into my apartment in New York! I'm living right next to a beautiful park in Brooklyn, and I have a fire escape outside my window which I am planning on filling up with lots of flowers. This morning I woke up to hear the rain pitter-pattering on my fire escape and I must say, I think Autumn might finally be here to stay, as long as we don't get more hot weather soon. I'm sorry to those of you in California; I know you've been having a heatwave! I guess it might be quite nice since you didn't get much of a summer.

For the past few days before I moved into my apartment I was staying with my friend Elise in New Jersey. I love being away from the city (which sounds silly to say since I just barely moved here!) and we spent so much time outside. One day I went for a rainy run along the canal that travels next to the Delaware river, and I saw a heron sitting by the water as I went past. I am also really into farming, especially after living on an organic olive farm in France, so Elise took me to the farm she volunteers at. We spent the whole morning picking bundles of Swiss Chard for the CSA in the afternoon, and also picked nasturtiums to put in salad mixes, and tasted some amazing tiny tomatoes. My thigh muscles definitely weren't happy after bending down for hours picking vegetables, but it was so relaxing. I wish there were farms like that closer to the city!
The flowers in these pictures are from another CSA. I picked huge armfuls of them because they are so pretty.

Are you interested in gardening or sustainable farming? I would love to hear about it!

These pictures are lovely. And so is the outfit. I love the color combos.

I love the idea of gardening and I love gardens but I don't think I could keep one up. Maybe I could. I don't know. I've never really tried. Then again, living on a boat makes that a bit tricky. :P

getting away from the city every once in a while is ok , i used to want to live in the city when i am younger , but at times the rat race and hectic work life can be so crazy i just wish i get out of it and find peace in somewhere quite , far far away from the city
