February and Cheerful Things

Valentine's Day approaches and Berch decorates the windows of the diner.

Ah! Pink hearts and roses!

At Bergamot there are lots of cakes...

...while outside the streets are vile.

Howard Johnson in Jamaica tries to be jolly and pink

and their lights reflect on the trains.

Scarlet tulips high above the snow at a friend's apartment

and Heidi Elizabeth brings joy to our family.


  1. Reminds me of that line, "She's pure as New York snow, she's got Bette Davis eyes." But the tulips and the new baby and her family are wonderful. Spring is only few weeks away. (I hope.)

  2. Those cakes are just too tempting.

    Heidi Elizabeth nolonger looks like a newborn baby - my goodness how quickly they lose that look. She is adorable.

  3. What wonderful photos.
    I want to taste all the cakes !
    My goodness Heidi Elizabeth is a lovely addition to a beautiful family.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. That little cuties is pure gold! no wonder you and the whole family is besotted Elizabeth!

    Ah, now I just can't imagine that there's anywhere quite like NYC for Valentines Day!

  5. Oh she is too cute..... will keep you posted but yes it would be lovely to take tea will be in town 3-8th and am insanely excited!!

  6. I still haven't managed to get your Heidi photos to load in that email you sent so lovely to see her here! Congratulations all. Also nice to see the cakes as I've been off them for two months nearly, trying to lose weight and get back to being a size 10. That may not happen but I've lost half a stone so far.....just by cutting out cake!

  7. Heidi Elizabeth is adorable!
    Congratulations to all the family!


I look forward to hearing from you!
