Meredith and Ryan left early Friday morning, so I spent my first day by myself wandering around Brooklyn. I went to La Casita as I usually do, only sadly, this was their last day of business.
I treated myself to a Crepe Florentine at a little place aptly called The Little Sweet Cafe; I can't get over how tiny so many places are up here. This is the entire width of the restaurant.
After my meal, I walked around the neighborhood of Boerum Hill, taking advantage of the nice weather. Isn't this a cute way to pot plants?
This is pretty too, although I don't think I'll try it at home.
This neighborhood garden is so inviting; I just love how there are so many gardens in even the smallest of spaces in New York.
This is the back of a garden shop I visited; if I wasn't flying home, I would have bought so many plants.
Especially the lavender; it was the healthiest looking lavender I've seen, as well as the most fragrant.
The succulent planters were amazing; I've gotten a collection of my own, but they are nowhere near as healthy as these are.
They also sold cut flowers, soaps, seeds, and garden supplies; it was the best smelling place, I'd have liked to sit and knit there for hours but I didn't think the shop girl would have approved.
