In September we visited Book/Shop in Temescal. It’s a neat little place with a curated selection of books and I have about five minutes in there when visiting with Clover. I always want to stay and admire some neat vintage design cover or gaze at the art prints dotting the walls for just one more moment as I am such a visual person. Well last time I spotted something that I wanted right away, a botanical print by Lucy Auge. We brought it home and decided to hang it over Clovey’s bed. It is simple and sweet and matches her cozy little space in our bedroom. Browsing the internets later I found more of Lucy Auge’s work. She has an Etsy shop of prints and is having a show in November. I am glad that we were able to purchase a small print with the typography, so that Clover (and I) will remember the artist.
I see these trees and wonder for eleven months of the year, “who decided to plant these boring, bare trees? They don’t even have leaves.” But then I see this explosion of pink blossoms each year and rejoice at the sight. The are definitely worth the wait. I have come to embrace this celebration of life and their short season of beauty.
