Take a Bow

So the big news around my neck of the woods has nothing to do with flowers or littlest pheasant's latest adventure but rather it concerns the man in my life. Adam has just installed this incredible public art work in Times Square, called Performer. You can read a review and see a video on Architects Newspaper.  If you are in the area you should stop by. Step into the spotlight and witness a virtual 500 person audience clapping and cheering just for you! It's quite a moral booster and hilarious to watch unsuspecting pedestrians walk into the light. Adam has had this idea for almost 20 years, a true testament to perseverance. Other news is he just became the artist in residence for the city of Seattle. Which means we'll be making some trips out to the great Pacific Northwest! I'm hoping you can give me advice on the best places to visit and enjoy. More to come.

I wouldn't leave you without some flowers...

How exciting! I love the pic of the 'jump for joy"! And I agree, I so admire the perseverance behind sticking with an idea for 20 years. Really cool.

I also wanted to let you know that I've referenced one of your creations again in my blog for Saffron Marigold. :) Great stuff for fall.

Congrats - patience is its own reward - your husband really deserves this. Lovely roses in a beautiful vase too!

Happy new week to you, Stephie x

I want to be that person jumping in the spotlight. It looks like too much fun. And Seattle?! Great news! I'd love to meet you and enjoy a cup of coffee together.

Oh, I can't wait for you to fall in love with Seattle! I'd love to give you too much info about inspiring places here. Let me know when you'll be here--we could even do a field trip day together!
