Mr. Mocking Bird………

and he LOVES green grapes…..on my terrace

Rhoda Rhodo….is blooming madly this Spring

I am always amazed that she survives the winters.

CLARA CLEMATIS……..is blooming again.

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.

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.

 

TOM’S TERRACE and the Scaffold Guys

The guys are working hard at pointing the bricks on my terrace and I am working hard on the other side…..trying to plant my garden.

TOM’S Terrace Garden

The scaffolds are still on my terrace and all my pots have been shoved to the other side……..where I am planting like mad…..trying to get a semblance of a garden going.

And my LILACS are in bloom………right on schedule.

My friend Maddie is developing a GREEN THUMB……….I couldn’t get the garden going without her help.

 

ARMAGEDDON on my Terrace today

I spent last week-end planting like mad……..all new flowers and plants and some new planters…..it was starting to look beautiful.

Today a scaffold crew arrived at 8am and announced they were going to erect 4 scaffolds to “point” the bricks  around the terrace and would be here for 8 months.  There goes the summer.

ARMAGEDDON!!!    Click on a scaffold to see the disaster.

RAINBOW over Central Park

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

TOM’S TERRACE……..installing new red tiles

It was such a disaster watching my garden get destroyed………the tiles were leaking into the apartment below.  My neighbor was annoyed!

The workers did a really great job………perfect pitch so the rain drains away………and doesn’t end up in my apartment.

Returned to a beautiful garden and ready for summer parties.
