Fall arrives in the kitchen

Autumn looks like this in our house: Colchicum, fall crocus, sedum, and a few Aster divaricatus in a little Danish vase in crowded quarters on the kitchen table. Juice glasses and tiny jars of every description are pressed into service for fluttering Cyclamen and the last of the hybrid  Japanese anemones -- the snow-white 'Honorine Jobert'.

Now that I live in New York City without my own personal garden, I'm still searching for seasonal flowers to display in egg cups, old medicine bottles and small jars. In my daily travels I passed a gardener installing mums in the front courtyard of a brownstone. He gave me full permission to pick up two broken stems from the sidewalk and bring them home. Buds and all, they lasted two weeks on my sideboard. Ellen Spector Platt,

Hi, Marty ~

I'm right here! I came across your wondering about me while googling myself today. I still live in Bomblebombia (isn't that right?) although residing in Salem, MA. If you want to find out what I've been up to, google me yourself. You might be surprised.

Even though it's been 35 years or more, I bet you're still a love!

Cheers, Lyssa
