Today is the First Day of SPRING

Some plants on my terrace have budded……..to welcome the start of Spring

In a month or so my terrace will return to “life”……….and look like this.

My pots will be filled with seedlings………….

The magnolias will be in bloom……….again

My green sweet potato vines will grow like crazy………

The lillies will grow into their glory…………..

My GREEN THUMBS will swing into action………..

The petunias will overtake their allotted space…………….

The crabapple tree has budded….and soon the flowers will appear.

The rhododendrons have set their buds……….

The LILACS are one my favorite bushes…………and oh their perfume………

New plants and new buildings………..I look forward to the plants……….but the skyscrapers are messing up my views.

SUNSET before the STORM………

The weather lady on the NEWS just said a snow storm will hit Manhattan tonight……..

If it happens………tomorrow I sill post SNOW!

Listen to the MOCKINGBIRD

This sweet little baby mockingbird landed my terrace this morning……..

Stayed around long enough to eat a dozen PORCELAIN BERRIES.

They are very poisonous….but it doesn’t seem to affect the mocking bird.

The other birds who visit my terrace………..like the BLUEJAYS and the CARDINALS……..never eat these berries.

SUNRISE and SUNSET from my Terrace

The SUNRISE this morning was a wonder………..

This afternoon it was a CLOUD wonder……….

And tonight the SUNSET was another wonder………….

making it a wonderful end to a wonderful day.

JAPANESE ANEMONE on my Terrace

This summer heatwave is not kind to my terrace garden.  All my plants are in pots…………and they dry out so quickly.

My Japanese Anemone has survived.

I did a watercolor of the flowers this afternoon.

 

SCAFFOLDS on my Terrace Garden……….

My flowers and trees are trying to survive.
