Sunday Clippings

Sunday Clippings


DSC_0400 As the cold nights become a reality with autumn, we're finding ourselves cozying with our warm beverages and blankets thus we are reading more and more. This week's clippings certainly confirms that - we have the Sydneysider's subtropical garden with its enviable view of the Sydney Harbor and the cityline, ecological consequences of a warming climate on pine trees and olive oil production, art clippings here and there, and an interview with renowned primatologist Jane Goodall. Shall we say that our craze for Nutella means more demand for hazelnuts? Of course sweatshirts are comfortable even if they are loud with florals! For those lucky to be in NYC this weekend, the third section of the High line will open. Enjoy your weekend!
