D.S. & Durga - Wild Brooklyn Lavender
Brooklyn flowering in the early aughts where wild packs of dogs roamed free among savage weeds and anything seemed possible.
spike lavender, wayside herbs
vetiver grass, lavender flowers
I moved to Brooklyn in 2002 when I was 22. Almost everyone I knew was doing something interesting. Once I left a poker game at 3 am in Bushwick. As I stepped onto the street. I was shocked to encounter a wild pack of dogs–the alpha leader, the Lil’ scruff, the dame, etc. New York was wild; it seemed like anything was possible. You could study the weeds that grew out of the cracks in Brooklyn, and even start a perfume company out of nowhere.
