Everything's Coming Up Roses … or zinnias and Pruden's Purple tomatoes, actually.
Wednesday was far too fine a day to work indoors. When our perambulations took us past Washington Park/JJ Byrne Playground, we felt compelled to linger and take pictures in the Old Stone House garden.
The Park Slope green space has pretty posies, grandly growing vegetables — and leafy stalks with eye-popping appendages that look like some scarlet-hued macrame project.
Old Stone House, of course, is the reconstructed farmhouse that was the site of great heroics during the Battle of Brooklyn on Aug. 27, 1776.
The house, now a museum, is one of many locales where the historic Revolutionary War battle will be commemorated this weekend.
