A Few Blossoms

I missed my chance to take photos of all the pink blossoms (and tulips) along Park Avenue. “I’ll take them tomorrow” is not a good way of thinking when it comes to trees, especially with all this earlier warm/later cool weather. I managed to snap these out on Long Island over the weekend. It was a smaller tree, and I didn’t have my camera with me, so this one, not-even-in-focus cell phone picture will have to suffice. One year, I will make it to DC (or back to Japan) for the cherry blossoms.

As always, I’ve been collecting links to share:

+ It was a sad moment when, after seeing this cup on Eat Drink Chic, I discovered in the comments that it was not one I’d be able to purchase for myself.

+ Will you look at that typography?! So glad a friend brought the work of Simon Walker to my attention (via The Fox is Black).

+ I was intrigued by the art featured in this post on For Me, For You and decided to check it out. It turns out Mammoth and Company is a bit like 20×200, featuring art prints in different sizes, with the 8×10 versions costing only $20. There are many prints from which to choose, but I think my favorites are “New Nature Systems 7” by Russel Leng, “The Season of Life” by Mark Warren Jacques, and “Moraine Lake” by Grant Harder.

+ One of my favorite bloggers, Anamu, is moving from London to Kuala Lumpur, and she’s having a moving sale on her webshop, The Pond Market! There are lots of great finds from her flea market adventures across Europe, so be sure to give it a look.
