Roses from the Union Square Greenmarket

I happened to be in Union Square this morning and since it is a market day, I stopped to buy some roses from one of my favorite vendors. Even though I've been buying roses from them for some time now, I'm embarrassed to admit that I do not know the name of the grower! They are always in the same spot, on the Northwest corner of the park, and their flowers are definitely worth a special trip.

Pretty Window at Fragments

I really like this fanciful window display currently on view at Fragments in SoHo.

This Victorian fairy-fantasy reminds me a bit of fashion photographer Tim Walker's work, which (happily) seems to be everywhere these days...

The TimWalker photo above is from the teNeues website. Visit Thomas Treuhaf for a wonderful slide show of Walker's work.
