Tulip season is upon us and every year I regret not planting them. So mark your calendars for next October or November for plantings.
Here are a few tips for planting:

Jeweled florals, pom-poms, beaded fringe, and high-octane color - statement earrings are in. Personal favorite - ones with tassels.

Patricia Wells recipe makes the best pizza dough - great for all those fresh vegetables and herbs that are available in the spring.

Asparagus arrived at the Farmers Market this weekend. Time to make Mark Bittman's yummy asparagus pesto. His recipe calls for boiling the stalks, which makes a bright green pesto but roasting the stalks gives a deeper carmelized flavor. Both are just great paired with pasta, fish, lamb slices or just with bread.
Debbie Harry has a new album and tour.
Here are some of her thoughts from an interview where she was questioned on aging.
Harry, 71, is releasing another Blondie album, Pollinator, and is about to embark on a world tour that includes Australia, so it seems likely she has an opinion.
“You are going on about this [age question],” she says. “You put it in people’s brains, and it becomes an issue, you know? That’s what you’re doing — you are creating an issue.”
She is right. But I don’t intend it as an insult. Harry has been a trailblazer for women in music on many fronts, and now she’s pioneering another: longevity. In the ’80s, people were amazed that Harry was still going strong at 40. She’s been having the last laugh for 30 years.

The focus of the German photographer Michael Wolf’s work is life in mega cities. Many of his projects document the architecture and the vernacular culture of metropolises.
By using a diverse array of perspectives and visual approaches, Wolf uses his camera to reveal the human energy that flows through the contemporary city. In so doing, he establishes himself not only as a photographer of the urban structure, but of the myriad ways in which people adapt to and reconfigure this rapidly changing environment, thereby providing us with a fascinatingly intricate portrait of life in the city.

If you are not familiar with the work of Uta Barth, you are missing not only some wonderful individual pieces but also an inventive body of work. Her "Field" Series is my favorite but really her whole body of work has changed over the years showing her continual quest expression.
