It was incredibly gorgeous when I woke up on Saturday morning so decided to get a cup of coffee and go and spend time in one of my favorite neighborhood spots: the Liz Christy Garden. This long and narrow community garden runs the length of the avenue on Houston Street between Second Ave. and Bowery St. Living in Manhattan, it can be easy to feel removed from nature and green space; but this well-loved and beautifully gardened land reminds me that it doesn’t take much to reconnect. Life lately, along with season, has been in constant duality. The garden this weekend was a mixture of summer and fall and though we’re not quite fully in either, the days of late have been spectacular. It’s bonus season and I hope you’re enjoying its spelndor!
