They’re so pretty, oh so pretty!

When I looked out our 11th floor bedroom window a few nights ago, I saw the pretty flowers on sale outside the grocery store, directly across the street. Since most Manhattanites don’t have backyards and gardens of our own, it’s a treat to see so many flowers, even if they’re 11 flights away.

Appreciate beauty wherever and whenever you can!

    Glad you have some beauty spots in the big city! Here in the sticks (North Chesterfield County, Virginia) we have beautiful fall foliage, smoke from wood fires, a flaming sugar maple and mums in my front garden, and pumpkins on the porch! I am so sorry you aren’t here to experience it. I love autumn!!

    P.S. One of my favorite memories is driving home from Petersburg down a country road, behind a truck loaded with fall pumpkins. The sun was low in the sky and the fall foliage was breathtaking. (And coming home to the smell of pumpkin pie!)

    More P.S., we have flower stands here, too!

    We’re about to leave for a two-week vacation in Manhattan, so your picture has me all hyperventilating : > I think cities are full of beautiful sights.

      Hi Patti,

      Such an adorable response!

      Where are you from? Have you been here before? If I can give you any recommendations, advice, etc., please don’t hesitate to ask me. I have lived in New York all my life, so I know Manhattan about as well as anyone 🙂

      My email is

      Fondly, Geri

    I’m sure there are many wonderful things about living in a big city. It has not been something that I have ever experienced. The sound of traffic drives me nuts and I have to say I think I would go mad without a yard! Even when I had to live in an apartment it was never past the 2nd floor and my balcony was filled with plants and flowers.
