The first time I saw this guy he was looking down at me from high on a roof top at Madison Square Park in NYC. It was fun to see this guy up close at ART SOUTHAMPTON.

Wild Rose

I like how this rose has climbed up the fence and into the privet hedge.
What a nice treat for people parking at Cryder Beach.

Golfy Marsh

The course at the Maidstone Club in East Hampton crosses over this marsh on a long low wood bridge.

Work of Nature

Our summer farm market features the wares of our local bee keeper EAST END APIARIES.
I like how the hexagonal honey jars can form up to make a honeycomb.

North Coast

Along the north edge of the south fork one can find a mix of;
sandy bay beaches, bluffs, harbors, ponds and coves.
This marsh is part of Cold Spring Pond in the Shinnecock area.

Sun Control

These classic awnings do a great job of keeping the afternoon's hot sun out of the house.

Flowers Gone Wild

It first pass this might look like a wild flower meadow. Actually it is a wildly extravagant planting of hardy perennials. For the first year the appearance was a little spotty, now it is really filling in to form a fine garden.

Marine Lands

The ocean was very smooth and clear today.When this wave rolled in there was a moment when one could look through the face of the wave right into the sea.

When colors fall on opposite sides of the color wheel they are called complimentary colors.
I think these blue and orange blooms are good examples.
I enjoy reactive color combinations in my garden.

Fresh Face

The Polish Catholic Church on Maple Street near the train station recently got a makeover.
I think they did a great job of keeping the charm of an older building and making it all look very fresh. The shingle siding and details are a nice reference to many fine homes in the area.

Garden Styles

When I first came to the Hamptons in the 80's a typical garden had blue hydrangea around the base of the house and pots with red geraniums about the pool. Today smart gardens are much more complex. The stylish gardener at this home has fit a full English border into her front pots.

Objects of Desire

This collection of sculptures appeared in a side yard off North Sea Road . The sculptures look very interesting to me and I will be watching to see what develops. I also enjoyed seeing the dumpster in with the lot of them.

Snatched in the Night

This morning my breakfast was missing. At first I thought I was confused about where I left my bread and cheese. I then spotted the new rip in the screen. I think a local raccoon beat me to it.
