Springtime In Brooklyn
I am so excited to finally have some warmer weather, everywhere I walk I see buds and little bits of green popping up and the crocus are in bloom. When it’s Spring I can’t wait to get some herbs and veggies in the pots, I thought I would check out today what kind of plants they had at the Farmers Market and on the way back stop off at the Brooklyn Flea, today is the first day they are back after the winter hiatus. It was a little early for the plants but I managed to come back with a few, in 2 weeks I’ll go back for more. I got some thyme, Italian flat leaf parsley, lime and sweet basil, pansies, begonia, mint, sage, rosemary. Can’t wait to plant them this week. I decided to try tomatoes this year too!! I am lucky enough to live and work in this wonderful community with it’s graceful architecture, century old homes, friendly neighbors, great shopping and food. Here are some photo’s of what I saw on my way around my neighborhood today.
Graham Home for Old Ladies- I kid you not thats what the placard on the building really say’s, it used to be a brothel, and when the ladies aged it became a home for elderly ladies (of the night). They serviced the community many years and were frequented often by the sailors who came into the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
