Simply Red. Among other reasons to wish we owned a building in Manhattan is that we would be able to put a flowerbox on every window sill. The folks at 462 Sixth Avenue have done it. This week we spotted this striking display of red geraniums and couldn't stop staring.
See Small SlideshowWhen I was a little girl, my mom and went to Spain and were inspired by the patios filled with pots of geranium. When we returned to L.A., we covered a wall in our patio with little terra-cotta pots of red geraniums. I remember the fresh leafy smell that would waft through the yard on a hot day, or when mom shot the hose up in the air to water the pots. Walking up Sixth Avenue this week, and passing this cheerful sight, I could swear that the traffic became quiet for just one moment, and I caught a whiff of wet brick and warm geraniums. Heck, if I can't have a whole building, I'd settle for a sunny patio. Wouldn't you? skgr
