fort greene blooms

This weekend, I spent a good part of Saturday afternoon in Fort Greene, one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Brooklyn. The gorgeous weather called for a very lovely outdoor brunch at Madiba. My brunch mate and good friend, Sparrow Hall was donning his dapper Brooklyn spring duds and hat. I was dressed hoping to get some sun on my face and shoulders.

A stroll through the area and the Brooklyn Flea (photos to come) and a dachshund meetup at Fort Greene Park was a perfect way to spend the day. It was great to see the first spring blooms — and the neighbourhood come alive. I loved this (Easter) egg garden installation (bottom photo) in front of a brownstone building. I figured it must belong to someone who has access to stage/movie props. Each giant egg was sitting in it's own nest. Funny!
