summer stock sunday/random strangers

for more of this photo project hosted by Robin, click here







Summer is about gardens,
either elevated over city streets
or
in one's own backyard.


This past Fridaycation™,
I went to wander The High Line,
(more of those pix this Thursday in the Hood
)
with Elizabeth Wix of About New York.

We paused to watch this High Line gardener at work.

She, in turn, paused to chat with us
and
allowed me to take her photo.


EDITED to say: My back has been wonky, so I apologize for not visiting/commenting .. I am not permitted to sit for long ..

  2. There. That's better.

    I just love the concept of the High Line and would love to ramble there with you two bloggee pals.
    Unintentional, hidden gems are what make a great city a delight!

    Getting Sunday out of the way because of the Blogger scheduled posting problem? OK, take tomorrow off LOL

  3. I love to see this. Every city needs some green, and what better way than to grow vegetables. I hope that's what she's doing.

  4. I didn't know about this gardens. Interesting topic. There is no much spare room in the city and NYC is among the most expensive one. Great job - to care for these gardens!

  12. I heard about the High Line on a news show last week and my son went a couple of weeks ago. I can't wait to see it when I come visit you! Whenever that will be.

  13. It just goes to show you that a garden can be anywhere! Hanging from a window or growing in the sill...surviving on the rooftop or just beneath the hill...I loved this post...it lifts my gardening spirit!

  14. Summer is about gardens! And, I love that people have gardens on rooftops. So cool that you got to see visit the garden, and of course the gardener took time to talk to you. She certainly deserves to get to brag a bit. Fun photos!

  20. I love chatting with strangers. Especially about gardening. Great shots and a good time, I think!

  21. I love the idea of gardening but weeds are green. Hey! If it's growing, it can stay. Sit pretty, feel better, or stop kicking tires???xo

  22. Oh major sympathy on the back, I have so been there before. Have you ever tried a kneeling stool for work, I had one in the UK and also here, it's a lifesaver trust me.

    Love the rooftop garden, just so neat.

  23. Love the garden shot! I take it you don't have a backyard of your own. Maybe I should send you some of my tomatoes ... they might help your back?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hope your back is better soon. I know that pain and it blows!

    I've always marveled at rooftop gardens... Seems like a lot of work!

    ReplyDelete
  25. OH Drats! A bad back?! Gawds girl - I know from where you moan.....

    Mind you - the injection I had a year ago has helped a lot. Still - needles right into your spine- not fun. Hope yours doesn't go that way.

    Relax relax relax.

    If it's muscle spasms....flexeril works a charm. Just knocks you out though.

    Get better - okay?

    mwah!
