Rooftop Herb Garden

June 14, 2011

What was once an unused building rooftop, has graciously been transformed into a serene herb container garden. For 20+ years since we bought an apartment in our building, the roof was just a blank space. Over the last few years, the space has become a welcome spot to have a cocktail before we head out to dinner. It is also filled with pot after pot of herbs, that I love to use in small vases in place of flowers, or that we use when we are cooking at home.

Last night we took up a glass of rose’ to enjoy before we headed to Spinasse, an Italian eatery in our neighborhood. I can not give enough praise to this place. The hand made pastas are out of this world. So good in fact, that we opted to share another plate of pasta at the end of the meal, instead of getting dessert–it is just that good.
