a nyc {for tryon} picnic.





oh how i love fort tryon park!

oh how words fail to extol its many virtues!


it is my favorite place in all of new york. the air is cool and fresh {reminiscent of my grandparent's home in briarcliff}.


and the flowers are in bloom now. the smell! oh, the smell! so if you're in the city get on the nearest A train and get off at 190th. take the elevator up and find yourself in the sweetest little subway station that catapults you into forest. yes, that's right. i said catapult. and forest.

so when deciding where to celebrate cinco de mayo, it was a no-brainer. we gathered blankets, chips and guacamole, hummus, bread and goat cheese.
insta-picnic!

happy fifth, indeed!

that sounds like a lovely cinco de mayo my dear! i love the heather garden. what i would give for a picnic in the park right about now.

i am currently slogging my way through a six page self-assessment paper that is due tomorrow. there were no festivities at casa de kiwi tonight so i will have to live vicariously through you!

I had such a strong reaction to those first two pictures. They're absolutely gorgeous, and I wish I could frolic in those pictures every day like a twitterpated bunny.

P.S. The lady will have two tickets to the gun show!
