Salute from Montreal!

It has been wonderful exploring a new city and finding out what makes it tick ... is Montreal ripe for a terrarium takeover with its urban design-saavy inhabitants and its longer winters?

I have been so lucky to have wonderful friends to stay with ... Cass n' Mat ... as innovators online and in the kitchen they are pure inspiration
...plus their aquarium has given me many ideas ... it is inhabited with a snail a frog a crab a shrimp 2 rare goldfish and one really big gold fish who fancies himself a shark



I am off (once I find appropriate rain gear)

- to the Atwater Market,

Will take pictures of what I find ... looking for things like this ...

Beautiful Pictures from May Day at the Hester Street Fair!

I simply cannot wait to get back out to the Hester Street Fair!

If you need a mother's day gift - I can ship!

Happy Mother's Day! See you next week at the Hester Fair May 15th & 16th!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day - I am so happy to celebrate Mothers this year - mine is my everything and I love her so much - she has shown me the world twice over

Thank you mom! For inspiring me to work with plants ... of course, I made a special terrarium just for you!



I am also so excited because my best friend (who has helped me purchase roman chamomile ... and various other things in glass containers from San Francisco's Ferry Building Market) just became a Mom today! Welcome Ava!
