These paperwhites grew from bulbs given as a Christmas gift and they are really brightening up our snowy, kitchen window and are one of my favorite things to look at when I come home.
When we were at the aquarium last week I heard a mother talking to her 18 month old son who was busy massaging yogurt into his cheeks. 'Timothy, after we leave the aquarium we are going to the North End. The North End is a lovely neighborhood with many Italian bakeries.' While I'm not sure that Timothy was excited about the bakeries I sure was and so Friday we took the train down there to find one of my new favorite parts of the city. One of the best places was this small public library with a square fountain in the center that had been shut off leaving the water still so that I could see all the pennies and nickels at the bottom. So many wishes in the bottom of such a quiet fountain in the middle of such a quiet library in the middle of a neighborhood full of italian pastries. How could one not love the North End?
