Oxalis in the Window

Enjoying Oxalis in the window at the Claireware showroom while holiday shopping.

I was worried that with the end of my horticulture internship at Brooklyn Botanic, botanical inspiration would be harder to come by and that I might not achieve the goal of keeping this blog going for a full year. But Susan ( and Claire's ( craft sale on Sunday provided a nice dose of botanical beauty with some lovely plantings at the pottery studio, some even in handmade pots, like the Oxalis above. Interestingly, there was some butterfly weed blooming still in an outside box. I had no idea that it could hold blooms even after a frost, but perhaps the warm spell we had before this winter weather kept it going. I'm tempted to go back and see how it fares today. As I write this, there are snow flurries in Brooklyn.
