WEST SIDE COMMUNITY GARDEN

This delightful community garden is on the UPPER WEST SIDE of Manhttan.  Established by volunteers……….and maintained daily by volunteers.  I have donated 200 tulips and I love the Spring time when they bloom.


You can sit…..rest……read……bring the kids…….and have a picnic……..or just SMELL THE ROSES.

Movies in the evening and free concerts on the week-ends.

Today was ETSY day at my local flea market.



Tho……..we no longer call it the FLEA………..rather the GRAND BAZAAR.……….and it is not all that grand……..but fun for a FLEA!!!

Antiques……..Artisans and Edibles………..and no mention of the FLEAS.

MATHILDE FREUND….102 years “young” has been selling her wares at the GRAND BAZAAR for 30 years.  She fled from the Germans in 1937…..to PARIS…..then to NEW YORK.  When I see her at the “Flea” we converse in German….and in FRENCH when I am with my friend Julie [from Paris].
