This past week, it was all about trees, blossoms and all manner of things growing from the ground (literally, and not so literal). For instance, additions to our hand-painted family tree at the Dean St shop,
and our ever changing cherry trees which are now at their fluffy peak.
Mother Nature is really pulling out all the stops. There is no better proof of that than the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens which we visited this past Saturday while Dave’s parents were in town. It was packed with people, but also with also sorts of lovely blossoming trees.
Our little “urban farm” is coming right along. Dave and I are already talking about what kinds of dishes we will whip up with this year’s crop, what veggies will get pickled and what to do with the overabundance of mint and thyme.
And last, but not least, a highlight of the week, having nothing to do with vegetation, we had our Annual OGC bowling outing. It was our second at Melody Lanes in Sunset Park, which is so terrific because it makes you feel like you hopped in a time machine and traveled back in time. Everything just pushes the boundaries of being overly outdated but the bowling is great and the company even better. Who can argue with this:
Dave and I feel pretty lucky to work with such a special group of people. And that sentiment has nothing to do with their impressive bowling skills.
