These images are of the beautiful stained glass at the Mamaroneck house. In keeping with the arts and craft period of the house, the designs are organic, inspired by nature's shapes and colors. They are a stand in for the fact that I have no pictures to show for my time up there this weekend. I did a lot, weeding, tidying up, planted peas and potatoes in the vegetable bed, started another batch of seeds - mainly flowers, Cosmos, Clarkia, Allyssum. I planted sweet peas directly in the flower beds. Meanwhile Jim worked on the cold frame, putting in the hinged window and fitting it to the bed. Lots of things were emerging, in the seed boxes - the basil seeds had sprouted. The weather however was cold damp and gray and nothing looked the least bit inspiring despite all this going on.
