I've been admiring Honey Locust trees all over the city lately. And by all of the city I mean literally - uptown - downtown - midtown, you name it I've been there. And not on no leisurely stroll down the avenue, sons! Please! I admire my nature through the car window, full speed, lean out the window, snap a quick one. Don't even slow my roll cuz you know I have the camerabag app on my 3G. You honking at me?! YOU HONKING AT ME?!?
You probably pass a honey locust tree every day if you live in NYC. The city plants them because they grow very quickly and are tolerant of tough conditions. They live to be 120 years and have leaves that are the exact same color as a taxi cab.
I'm experiencing a beauty explosion in the studio right now! I would take a snapshot but I dropped my phone in a vase of water (better than the toilet!) it happened as my mookie was calling and the whole thing was rather slow-mo and strangely romantic in a cinematic sort of way - Eric's picture on the phone - submerge d- suspended amidst the rose stems, quietly still ringing.
Anyway! I have time to make floral studies again, and am enjoying it like a crazy banshee tonight. I have a beautiful bale of golden dogwood foliage some olisou tulips my favorite lately...silver brunia, heuchera leaves, and more. Throwing all that shiz up into an antiqued stone urn! top it off with some tree peonies, bitches!
