Cleaning up my laptop and just came back across these old disposable photos. I love the feel of these images taken on the cheapest camera known to man. Check out more pics I took The Harris Garden (fourth pic down and one of my favourite English gardens) here.

I visited the High Line in New York for the first time in summer last year and it was top of my list of things to do when I was back in town earlier this month. This rambling walkway park is made from a disused rail line and runs from Chelsea to Meatpacking.

We are about to venture into the California desert but while I’m still sitting in a nice hotel in my robe in Las Vegas, I can post some pics from New York. As per usual we basically just ate our way through the city. We stayed in a beautiful apartment in Soho with giant palms, caught up with loads of friends, visited Union Square Park Market, went to a few shows at New York Fashion Week, partied on rooftops, and visited a bunch of little gardens.

The Little Flower School is run by Nicolette Owen and Sarah Ryhanen. Nicolette has her own floral studio Nicolette Camille Floral and Sarah is co-founder of beautiful Brooklyn florist Saipua as well as owner of a flower farm in upstate New York.

They came together in 2008 and now run classes all over the US and most recently did some special classes in Sydney. I was disappointed to learn of the classes after they had already sold out, but got to enjoy something of their visit through the photographs they posted of their trip.

Alex MacLean learnt to fly while studying architecture at Harvard University. His latest book gives a pretty spectacular glimpse into the rooftop gardens of some of New York’s luckiest residents. Imagine.
