Where a tree once was 22nd Street
Spring brings with it a great urge to improve and prettify things. An excellent idea. Some people do indoor projects like putting in new carpets or recessed lighting or things like that. Other than ordering some Le Crueset cooking stuff (for when I feel ambitiously domestic) my thoughts turn to outdoors. Since I don't have a garden I long to take over a little plot of something outside and adopt it in a sort of guerilla gardener sort of way......
....just as Luis Lujan has done on the corner of 25th Streetand 9th Avenue. Petunias rule! I look forward to following his project. Buster is pretty impressed too!
This morning I met Shin Shin from California who pastes huge photos
of fruit from her garden onto other graffiti. She wants to make things a great deal prettier.....
22nd St. between 10th and 11th Avenues.
.... and somehow succeeds.
The new park at the west end of 23rd Street now has a carousel
with lovely decorated creatures to ride on. A great hit on a late spring Sunday.
