A couple of shots from last weekend.

Daffodil open house
An annual ritual around here is the open house hosted by Nina Bassuk, woody plant specialist in the Department of Horticulture where I work, and her husband Peter Trowbridge, chair of the Landscape Architecture Department. They’ve planted something like 60,000+ daffodils over the years. And there are always some other interesting things to see at their place.
Monday music: Dawn Penn
Hot weather makes me crave reggae. My first exposure to this classic was Penn’s ’94 single that I found on a cheap reggae compilation CD, nowhere to be found online. This is her ’60s original, but there are dozens of remixes out there as well as a decent live version and a cover by Rihanna. If memory serves, it’s actually a cover of a ’50s R&B hit.
