I fell in love with the community garden at 9th street and Avenue C the other day (why yes, of course I was at Ninth Street Espresso Cafe :D). I seriously could have taken pictures of every nook and cranny in this garden. It was so beautifully put together. Even the "messes" were just so charming and romantic. It's really this kind of stuff that tugs at my heartstrings. I didn't even mind that I got mosquito welts all over my feet (pretty much the only bits of skin showing!) that are still itchy days later.
There was one particular little area that I felt like was put together by an Anthropologie stylist or something - the pink lanterns and mirror shot show this.
I didn't even realize spaces like this existed in the city. I think I need to hunt down some more. What a gourmet feast for my aesthetic sensibilities!
