Took a quick sanity break in Central Park. Lovely spring colour. #spring #nyc #centralpark
The Orchid Show: Mum and I had a wonderful time escaping a cold, wet, gloomy NY day in the tropical paradise of the Enid Haupt Conservatory.
Beautiful and fragrant pansy orchids @nybg #orchidshow (at New York Botanical Garden)
Grand Central Friday night craziness
Here it is! Your handy guide to what’s in bloom at the NYBG, and probably across New York City, too. I know I saw a blooming Viburnum on the High Line not too long ago, and I have spotted several crocuses and daffodils in pocket parks. I’ll try to do another one of these each week for the next few weeks so you’ll always know what you’re talking about, at least when it comes to flowers and blossoming trees and shrubs. ~AR
This city desert makes you feel so cold
It’s got so many people but it’s got no soul
And it’s taken you so long to find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything

Mummy, I can hear the mouse, I can smell the mouse but I can’t get to the mouse. It’s very frustrating.

Fettuccine with Shrimp Scampi
Such a simple dish: sautée prawns/shrimp with garlic, add juice & zest of 1 lemon, 1 lemon thinly sliced, 1/2 bunch finely chopped parsley, salt & pepper.
I don’t understand American scones. Why are they triangular? Why do they have so many flavours?
A plain scone with good strawberry jam and clotted cream is perfection.
