the apple tree jazz party
I have a little porch off of my studio upstairs that is so beautiful
if only because it is nestled right into the branches of a cherry tree.
Until this afternoon I did not have anything on this porch with the
exception of an old indian rug and since the porch is partially
covered with a beamed roof I love to sit outside in the morning
for quiet meditations/morning coffee/bird symphonies.
This afternoon however I got it into my head to pot some purple basil
in these clay pots I found abandoned on a walk down Sunshine alley.
Whilst I was potting I brought my portable record player up to the porch
and played Duke Ellington's jazz party which I cannot say enough about, it
really is that fabulous.
of course I had to snap a polaroid and was so happy with the apple green
leave's reflection on the record as it spun around and around and around.
