Picnic in Central Park

From 66 Square Feet, 2 days ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

After doing a bit of this, yesterday evening, in the Conservatory Garden......we did a bit of that.While we ate Vince remarked, It's been a very long time since we had a picnic. He was right. The Harlem move knocked the picnic right out of us.It's been over  a year since our last picnic, on the roof in Brooklyn. And before that, there was this one, with our healthy, happy kitty (who has been rallying  over the last few days).In fact, there were lots of picnics.And it... Read more

The nights are drawing in fast, darkness falling around 7pm each evening.I love to light candles on the porch, and sit and enjoy the cool night air.My latest craft project has been the creation of these Mason Jar lights. You can purchase the lid-lights at most craft stores, or online, mine were left over from my granddaughter's wedding decorations. The lids fit a regular Mason Jar opening, and charges the solar battery throughout the day.The jars can be filled with glass beads or...

What cows should not eat...

From 66 Square Feet, 5 days ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

At last, a mystery solved.For months I've been eyeing a plant in one of the planter boxes on the eastern side of the terrace. It came up near the jewelweed, and I had no idea what it could be. Now it's in bloom and it's obvious: white snakeroot, Argeratina altissima (formerly Eupatorium rugosum). Famous for killing Mrs Lincoln (mother of Abraham), by way of her cow. Milk sickness was passed on to humans and calves by cows who'd grazed on the plant,  and apparently killed thousands of... Read more

Time For A Change

From A Brit in Tennessee, 6 days ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I've been thumbing through wallpaper patterns, in the hopes of re-wallpapering the guest bathroom.Book upon book of gorgeous prints, a person could get lost in flipping through the pages.I keep returning to a design by Waverly (one of my most favorite manufacturers), Emma's garden, a timeless and pretty design, with a traditional English flair.What do you think ?

Green-WoodGreen-Wood Cemetery27 September 2014, 12pm - 2.30pmAs I wrote in 66 Square Feet - A Delicious Life, some of the city's most beautiful trees grow in Green-Wood. I have sat under them in the hottest months and felt cool, and have rustled through the leaf litter in fall, sharing the grounds with no one but a stately ground hog, who is king of Green-Wood.Join me on a quiet exploration of one of the most peaceful parts of the city. Also the most hilly. Rare, in New York City.Image: Google... Read more

Sourdough focaccia

From 66 Square Feet, 1 weeks ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Sourdough sultana focaccia.Yes, it's sourdough weather again (a few days ago the coconut oil in the pantry cupboard turned from liquid to solid and I knew the season had changed).I made just one sourdough loaf in the summer, and it lay down and cried. Then I did. Boules and breads that call for a 500 degree oven belong to the cool and cold months. But the starter has been living in the fridge with weekly feedings, and the other day I suddenly craved - craved - the sour cherry focaccia that is... Read more
