El Morocco

The El Morocco Lounge was a popular night club in NYC from the 1030s into the 1050s.
A home on First Neck Lane had a replica of the lounge in the homes cellar.
This newer stair carpet might be a reference to either lounge.

Premium Parking

Photo coming soon
I was very impressed with this parking lot of Belgium Block and grass. The stone blocks prevent wheels from making ruts or wear.

Up In the Sun

Someone once told me waterlily blooms sit on the water and lotus blooms project above the water line. With lotus you also get those nice seed pods.

Beach Stickers

Each year the local towns & villages issue a new permit for beach parking. The permit is a sticker attached to the glass. Each year this sticker is a new color. Many people like to post the history of beaching.

Summer Blooms

Most plants bloom in late spring so they can make good seeds by summer. By August most gardens have peaked and blooms can be hard to come by. The Rose of Sharon from the hibiscus family come in a range of pink & white combinations.

More Cool Cars

For a long time the Brit's ruled the sport car world. This 1952 MG is a great classic. Cars would change a lot over the next few years. The T-bird rolled out in '55

Instant Gardens

Traffic waits as large trees are moved onto the property of a new home. These big trees will provide a lot of screening for both sides.
