New Basics

It seems rare today to see a new construction of such modest proportions. Set in a most excellent location just steps to the ocean, this is all the house I would need.

Lots of sneezing in the air this fall. I am told that Goldenrod is often the culprit.

Purple Menace

In the late summer the Poke Weed makes some bright purple berries. When the birds eat the berries they can make a big mess. The bright red stem gives a hint of the bright color.

Storm Tides

After yesterdays day of storms a bit more beach got washed away. It seems to come & go all winter.

On older brick walkways the bricks are set higher in the middle of the walk. This crown creates a gutter on the sides for the water to drain off to.

Sneaky stuff. I cut some unwanted vines at the base of my holly tree. It turns out my tree was far more overcome with the weed than I could have imagined. After the cut a great quantity of dead leaves surfaced.

Good Afforable Art

The Romany Kramoris Gallery on Main St in Sag Harbor has a great range of artists this season.
The present show by Sheryl Budnik is a knock-out.
All the prices in the gallery seemed very reasonable with some painting starting at $60.00.
