I was so happy to see some lovely April flowers on my commute to work this morning!
I live in the Newport area of Jersey City, and it’s easily one of the nicer areas around here. The town does a lot of upkeep, including planting flowers in the spring! So I encountered these right outside of my building:
Later in the day, I ventured into Hoboken with a coworker to grab lunch at a small Cuban restaurant called La Isla. Didn’t manage to snap photos because we were absolutely ravenous, but we ordered the shrimp ceviche to share and Cuban-style sandwiches. Mine had ham, cheese, and a pickle on it. Tasty!
But the second highlight of my day came right after lunch! While walking back to the car, we saw some cactus being sold on the sidewalk. I’m very jealous of my coworker’s adorable bonsai tree so I had to one up. After careful consideration, I went for this little bundle:
Cute, right? I decided to name them Shaggy (the front one with the little curls), Daphne (the pinkish one on the right), Fred (the one(s?) on the left), and Velma (the prickly one in the back). Yay! They’re my new little work buddies.
