Simplicity - Summer

The last two days have not been as active in terms of my NYC stay-cation as I had hoped.  It is so hot and humid out!  Yesterday, I managed to get out and pick up our vegetables at our CSA.  We had our first summer corn, yippee!!   No pics of the corn, we ate it too fast.  I did manage to take a picture of these gorgeous carrots...


I also got out to enjoy the beautiful garden behind my apartment yesterday.  It's a gorgeous English garden with so many different types of flowers...


Talk about a stay-cation, I didn't even leave the property around my building.  But I rarely go out to appreciate this lovely garden, and it's right outside my window!


And finally, I have been eating lots of cherries (which are my favorite summer fruit) and playing with a new camera app on my iPhone:
