It’s New York, rain looks good on you!

Friends,

Today’s weather calls for sun with a high of 79 degrees, and widely scattered showers…and to this we say, thank goodness Flatbush Farm’s got a roof,  and a charming outdoor space to allow us rain watch and take lovely rain photos. After all, it’s New York and rain looks good on you!
