Lovely ones at Union Square. I do get a bit bored, however, with people who ‘love nature’ in general. I make exceptions for mosquitos, black mambas, typhoons -you get the idea.

I’m more of a Marie Antoinette sort of nature lover – would hate to be like Tess of the Durbervilles  freezing miserably in a potato field – or Ivan Denysovich out in the Siberian elements.
