LUNCH on the Terrace on a lovely Saturday afternoon

Julie is visiting from France so I put together a vegetarian lunch and invited Barbara and Paul to join us.

Paul baked a cheesecake…………it was sublime.

PETAL PLANTS and FLOWERS

Every Sunday morning you can find me behind the Museum of Natural History

where local farmers set up their stands.

My friends always ask me “where do you get all those plants and flowers in your garden”.

I get them from my friend Al [at my local farmers market]………. every Sunday morning].

A very brief thunderstorm in the late afternoon………….and a sliver of a rainbow……casting a brilliant light over my terrace.  

AMIGO fell out of his NEST

BABY SPARROW fell out of his nest this morning.  Momma bird went nuts!  I scooped him up and put him in my garden.  He is running scared…………but did not fly away.


I named him/her………….AMIGO!

SPRINGTIME on my Terrace

The sunrise this morning………..so full of the colors in my garden.  The rhododendrons and the geraninums and the petunias………oh so glorius.

Spring has Sprung in NYC today

It was a 76º day in NYC.  I decided to do a “beach” lunch and pretend I was on Sanibel Island in Florida.

I met a nice family from Sweden this morning at Tavern on the Green in Central Park.  I wish I had invited them to lunch.

The green fish water pitcher…a gift from Margo…..it “gurgles” when you pour!

Platter from Bonwit Teller.

TUNE SALAD with watercress.

Okra….grapes and blue cheese.

Flowers from my local florist.
