Can we start blooming yet?

If you live north of Atlanta and east of the Mississippi, then you know this winter was rough. It was so rough that I am inventing a walking sleeping bag that generates heat using a combination of solar and infrared radiation that covers you head-to-toe, allows for mobility (and easy off for those who drink too much coffee in the morning), doesn’t make you look like a tire company mascot, and keeps your fingertips and toes from turning blue… just kidding, I’m not that tech-savvy. But someone should get on that. Pronto. Especially for us worker-bee’s who have the pleasure of working outside in white-out conditions for hours on end!

End rant.

I am however growing a bit weary of New Yorkers complaining about the weather. It’s the first day of SPRING tomorrow for Pete’s Sake! And if it’s not a bright, sunny 60 degrees, I know many of you will have something to say about it. Let’s all just take a step back, and savor the sweet fact that tomorrow will be a little warmer (maybe), the sun will shine just a pinch longer, and maybe – just maybe that last bit of dirty, yellowish-brown snow in the shady corner of the street will melt. After all, 99% of the 3-foot deep slush/ garbage juice lagoons at the corner of each crosswalk have disappeared! If that doesn’t make you delighted, I don’t know what will. 

So that said, let me introduce you to something you haven’t seen in a while.. Blossoms!


Captured in the Wellesley College Greenhouse a couple weeks ago. Enjoy, put a smile on your face, and embrace spring when it gets here in T-minus 3 hours!

ps – and here’s a sneak peek of an engagement shoot at the same greenhouses – more to come!!! I’m SO excited about these two (hint: I’ve known one of them since 4th grade!)

    “Spring is all about flowers”
    “Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”
    Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
