9/11 Memorial TOWER OF LIGHT

This year the TOWER OF LIGHT was only one ray.  

The other was being used at another site of the tragedy.

This is the view from my terrace………,from which we watched the collapse of the towers….20 years ago.

Rhoda Rhodo….is blooming madly this Spring

I am always amazed that she survives the winters.

DAKOTA APARTMENTS ROOF TOP

Snow on the roof of the Dakota apartments………

actually they are called “flats”


The “flats” are 8 rooms up to 20 rooms………..tho many have been combined to create 30 room apartments.

The 30′ skylight window is Ward’s apartment………two windows….

one on each side

                 The tower in the background is my apartment

NYC in another BLIZZARD

Looking over the DAKOTA APARTMENTS……….trying to get a                       glimpse of Central Park………which has all but disappeared.

 

 

 

Day MOON over Manhattan

Snapped this at 5pm.

Macy’s THANKSGIVING DAY Parade • 2019

High winds kept the BALLOONS close to the ground today………..and 3 million people lined the parade route to see them.

This shot of SNOOPY was taken from my balcony

Spiderman “bit the dust”

Nobody wanted his COTTON CANDY……….

Her nose to the ground…….

 

Tom’s Halloween Pumpkins

I was NOT in the “DECORATE PUMPKIN MOOD” this year…….so my pumpkins are not very inspired.

 

A WIERD PINK CLOUD

It hovered over my terrace last night…..and West 57th street where my dear friend ROSIE lives.

The BATTLE is on • MORNING GLORIES vs SCAFFOLDS

The MORNING GLORIES have gone wild…………..and more SCAFFOLDS have taken over my terrace.

The Great Blue Heron ignores them all.

 

Two days ago this new batch of scaffolds was not here.  They go up quick.

I though a watercolor would help my “anti-scaffold” mood might lighten up.

NUDE SUNBATHERS enjoy my Dish Garden

My garden is covered with SCAFFOLDS……[building repairs]……..so I planted a “DISH GARDEN”.

 The planter is 30″ diameter…….and 5″ deep.

Midge and Mike are sculpted from poly plastic.

It is a perfect place to enjoy a good read.

There is no fear of “Limes Disease” in this garden paradise.

Dwarf plants cover every inch of my garden.

The SCALE of the garden is 1″ to 12″…….so the watermelon is one inch.

I sculpted the cats from FIMO CLAY.

Tiny Tommie……scultped from FIMO……is 4 inches tall….

and he LOVES WATER MELLON.
