Not Spring Yet...
Much neglected blog....
Not too much to report.
However, some charming snowdrops on Long Island
a wonderful Grant Wood show at The Whitney
best public exhibition I have been to in ages
even when he is at his most depressing.
On a cheerier note - a splendid exhibition of Lucy Dodd's work
at the David Lewis Gallery. I have known Lucy since before she was born.
And then there are always the delights of food.
A pistachio eclair for Frances and a brioche for me.
On a wet day Eisenburg's Sandwich Shop
provides comfort food galore.
Toasted bagel and bacon.
Pickles and a BLT.
This morning there were bright ranunculi at Union Square.
Hurry up spring...

Winter Continues...and What to Do to Combat it...
The groundhog has spoken.
Six more weeks of winter - and it's still bitter cold.
Madison Square Park is bright and chilly
But Eric Kayser serves hot tea and gives you a little tiny financier in your saucer.
Another day I repair to the flower district
and bathe in bright ranunculus
and more ranunculus
and weird begonias with swirls in them
and my very favorites - hellebores more charmingly referred to as Lenten Roses.
I'm reading Agnes Jeykll's Kitchen Essays from 1922 which summon up a lost world and have just finished Diana Holman-Hunt's delightfully batty memoir My Grandmothers and I from 1960.
Only six more weeks.....
