Istanbul. September, 2014

Welcome the first day of spring. And while the 168 daffodil and hyacinth bulbs I planted last autumn have begun to emerge here at my Massachusetts home, I thought I'd honor the season with this floral pattern instead, the tilework underfoot as you enter my favorite baklava parlor in the City of the World's Desire. If you can pronounce the name of the place (Güllüoglu), you deserve a free piece of its specialty.
