Cutting Flowers with Susan

Some Brooklyn grown flowers fresh from the harvest

After a gloomy and rainy first half of the day, the sky cleared. I got to visit 615 Green, Susan's community garden in Brooklyn and we harvested some flowers. We've been thinking about some of these blooms since winter along with Anne, so there is satisfaction and celebration in seeing them now before us. And of course, we're already thinking about growing next year's flowers. Virginia Woolf had it all wrong. You don't need a room of your own so much as you need a cutting garden of your own to tend and watch grow, and friends to work with.
