I found Patricia Burke, a photographer working in New Jersey, and I really like her portfolio, and thought I'd share some images with you.
I know there's a bit of cold spell in the northeast, so maybe these pretty garden photos will warm you up and lift your spirits.
Eddie Ross (and Jaithan) arrived in New Orleans yesterday, and we'll meet at Perch today. There's quite a buzz here about him being at the Home and Garden Show.
He has a huge task ahead of him, running around town with a truck, picking up furniture and accessories for the rooms he's putting together. The show opens tomorrow, so I reckon he'll be working all night.
I'm pulling together the cocktail party for Eddie on Saturday night, and getting lots of help which is much appreciated.
A storm is blowing in tonight, and I hope it's gone by Saturday, so we can overflow outside on the porch and patio for the party. My yard guy's phone is disconnected, so the yard will have to be ghetto fabulous.
I went to Lowes tonight after work, and saw a cute gazebo with even cuter outdoor furniture nestled underneath. Even with spending shelved for now, I still don't think it's for me. The wind gusts outside in the plant section tonight were whipping my dress up, and I think the gazebo would be sent the way of Dorothy's flying house here in hurricane alley.
The year has gone so fast. Hurricane season is just weeks away. It seems we never catch up getting all the previous years (2005 - 2008) damage completely squared away.
But right now New Orleans looks her loveliest. The stately live oaks are chockful of spring green leaves. Flowers bloom everywhere. The humidity is low, and the temperature is perfect. This is the short window of fairy tale weather that we appreciate so much.
Ah, here's the end of the lovely work of Patricia Burke. Take a look at her site for many more terrific photographs.
