Anatomically Correct Bench
The benches along the riverfront in Chelsea have elaborate sphinxes holding them up.
The last time I was down there, I found this:
Someone has a sense of humor!
I am reminded of Nigella Lawson, for some reason. Is that bad?
Speaking of celebrity chefs and food, I have an addendum regarding yesterday's post about the pomelo. When I first ate it, I cut it in half, sectioned it and sprinkled it with sugar, as I would a grapefruit. Well, when I ate the second half yesterday morning, I left off the sugar -- and it was much better. Still not my favorite fruit, but the sugar overwhelmed the subtle pomelo. Keep that in mind if you ever buy one!
Dave bought more plants (argh!) including some teasels, which I was happy about, since as I mentioned the other day I tried to seed some in the garden myself and they didn't seem to take. I'll enjoy watching them grow this summer, though for the life of me I have no idea where we're going to put them. Or the three hydrangeas and the crocosmia. I gotta keep that boy off the Internet!
(Actually, we're thinking about taking out the grass around the roses and planting there -- which would give us a huge flowerbed. So I shouldn't complain. We do, in fact, have a plan. Kind of.)
