Red Eared Slider Turtles in Central Park.

Don and I watched this red eared slider dig a hole…..lay her eggs, dropping 15 of them.  Then she filled the hole back in using her back claws.  Took her one hour to complete the job.

VERDI SQUARE PARK…………nyc

This photo was published in the NY TIMES yesterday.  Friends got permission from the city to REVIVE a weed patch.


ALEYA LEHMANN is the remarkable lady who revived this park,  It had become known as VERMIN SQUARE PARK……or RAT PARK.  Don and I were there to record the progress.

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.

SUNSETS GONE MAD !!!

It was a week of RAIN……….and now we get a week of spectacular SUNSETS.

SURREAL!

PINK SKY AT NIGHT…..SAILORS DELIGHT

SETTING SUN OVER NEW JERSEY

This orange CLOUD was totally crazy.

Pastel tones over the San Remo Apartments

I call this one “MONTANA SUNSET”

ARMEGEDDON ?

End of day.
