SCAFFOLDS on my Terrace Garden……….

My flowers and trees are trying to survive.

HURRICANE WINDS hit my Terrace at 5pm

And then horrendous rains poured down………..threatening the scaffolds which had not been weighted down.

My pots….trees and flowers were tossed about………DAMN!

COCKTAILS on the Terrace • NY Athletic club

The location of the NY ATHLETIC CLUB is so convenient……just off Fifth Avenue and a block from Central Park.

The rooftop terrace is……fun….sun….and cocktails………or tea.

It’s fun to see my apartment  there in the tower in the distance……..from one terrace to another.

Tid-bits are served……….blue cheese bruschetta with mango for starters.

CAKEBREAD CELLARS………….ordered that just because the name is so amusing.

 

 

 

TOM’S TERRACE and the Scaffold Guys

The guys are working hard at pointing the bricks on my terrace and I am working hard on the other side…..trying to plant my garden.

TOM’S Terrace Garden

The scaffolds are still on my terrace and all my pots have been shoved to the other side……..where I am planting like mad…..trying to get a semblance of a garden going.

And my LILACS are in bloom………right on schedule.

My friend Maddie is developing a GREEN THUMB……….I couldn’t get the garden going without her help.

 

ARMAGEDDON on my Terrace today

I spent last week-end planting like mad……..all new flowers and plants and some new planters…..it was starting to look beautiful.

Today a scaffold crew arrived at 8am and announced they were going to erect 4 scaffolds to “point” the bricks  around the terrace and would be here for 8 months.  There goes the summer.

ARMAGEDDON!!!    Click on a scaffold to see the disaster.
