i think this is my favorite #stoopbooks photo that I’ve submitted. I love that the books are all part of a series and those plants are so pretty and colorful. If i had not been carrying a frittata and a bottle of wine when I passed them, I would have definitely taken those cuttings even though I would have no clue what to do with them. (other than call upon the expertise of gantpants!)
