Spring Flowers

the back of Jen's old apt.  The new tenant put a sign in the window, Jen thought it was a for sale sign.  at 20 megapixels I was able to do a creeper move and zoom in to see it's a Black Lives Matter sign.  This area is used as a parking lot and has a mechanical gate and a Chinese lady was walking by and said something to us in Cantonese wanting to know what we wanted and we said nothing and she immediately started the process of the gate closing.  No good can come from people snooping around and empty lot and she knows it.

Smith/9th streets

saw this vintage 1932 add in a Carroll Gardens store window.

the first croquet of the season

absolutely everyone was in Prospect park clinging to this warm joyous day like it was life or death, and for good reason because after this day it got cold again.  Everyone I know on social media was showing up as being in prospect park.  gross

it took a LONG time for them to get this piñata open.  It was one tough bastard, they kept hitting it to no avail until finally they had to just break it open.  We need a piñata!

someone was VERY excited about the flowers

breakfast at cobble hill coffee shop on court street.  It's an ok quality diner

what's going on here?  A morbid joker died and requested this be displayed?  What a weird thing to have on your stoop

Do you think you love your dog?  Look at this photo and ask yourself just how much you do.

the view from my office.  magnolias and tulips

trying to work on a personal Japan illustration and these guys that I got in Kyoto at the Fushimi Inari shrine factor into it.

as does this ema votive tablet I got from there as well.  Your'e supposed to write your wishes on it and hang it at the shrine

I guess this plant searches out water.  I'll update again when it's filled with roots.  My life is so exciting now.  Just slap a floral moo moo on me and call me a grandma and I would pass.

April's Fools

At a Madewell party, I guess this Natto or Uni nips t-shirt is in their new collection

a little later at a TOM's shoes event with supermodel Christy Turlington speaking about her organization everymothercounts.org teaming up with TOMS to provide pregnancy and child birth supplies to those in need to prevent deaths.  TOMS is famous for their one to one thing where you buy a pair of their shoes and they give a pair of shoes to someone in need.  Some thing going on there with bags.  Buy a bag, they give a bag full of childbirth stuff they need.  I used to draw Christy Turlington in highschool from the girly mags that were lying around the art room.  I thought she was the most beautiful creature in the world and she's still got it.  Anyway, 2 people right here doing good things

a little later on at an Anna Sui event.

Yemen Cafe on Atlantic Avenue.  Good stuff

old school fire escape in Alphabet City

Oda House is a Georgian (the country Georgia) restaurant in Alphabet City.  Adjaruli is cheese baked into yeast dough served with a poached egg.  it comes out hot and they swirl the whole middle up so the egg cooks together.  Good stuff

Georgian salad, in this case they mean more like chicken salad.  One is leeks, one is spinach and one is eggplant, all with ground walnuts somehow.  Also delicious.  We talked about ordering this and then didn't and I think they gave it to us anyway but it was too good to cause a stink about it.  Usually I would make a stink about things getting snuck in on us.  Not pictured is the satsivi which is cold chicken in walnut sauce with geogian grits and sulguni cheese.  Very delicious.  Was super pleasantly surprised by this place and by Georgian food

Will also visited.  He's just livin
