One poet may feel that the city saps the "colour" from them, but these photos show a city scene that rivals a new box of Crayons.N E W Y O R K C I T Y — Thanks to Ian, Ish of The Cahokian Blog, we have these awesome photos of his "stoop garden." Ian has planted these containers in front of his Brooklyn brownstone. I see all sorts of begonias, impatiens, coleus and vincas, delightfully mixed and matched. The flowers really complement the colors of the brownstone, marble and granite. If I lived in the area, I would make sure to walk by Ian's building everyday. I'm sure there are lots of appreciative Brooklynites in his neighborhood!
* The title of this post is a line from a poem by Nicole Buckland, Romance in the Moonlight. Not my favorite poem, but the first line was perfect for this post, lol.
Ian has a great eye for color and texture, as these impatiens, begonias and coleuses show.
Artfully arranged magazine or did someone drop some mail on the way in, lol. I love the combination of hot pink and bright orange shown here.

One of perhaps a million songs about New York I love... This might be playing in the back of my head as I perused Ian's colorful display, Lou Reed's Halloween Parade, a song about Greenwich Village's famous, and oh-so-colourful, annual event.
