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.


a polaroid givewaway!
