Garden Update #10 Winter Snow


Everything is covered in snow! Including Our Lady of Ridgewood.   Fiver ran out the door not realizing there was snow outside. He ventured further than his last snow excursion. After about 5 minutes, Fiver opted to sit in the doorway waiting for me to finish with these photos.

garden update #9 – winter edition


It was pretty nice out a few weeks ago so I decided to take Fiver out for some playtime on the RD. He loves being outdoors, as do I. While Fiver was investigating… everything, I took some snaps… A rainy but warm day. Dried hydrangea - always beautiful Fiver exploring! View large, it’s worth it.    

makeover for lucille roberts – the new ridgewood location is open!


I just came back from a JUMPIN Zumba class at the NEW Lucille Roberts location (55-05 Myrtle Ave. btw St. Nicholas and Madison St.) The upgraded facility is a huge incentive to accomplish my 2014 get buff and fit into my cute jean skirt again… challenge!   First impressions… The space looks modern and clean and the layout is great. You walk up one flight of stairs to the second level for entry and check-in. The treadmills, bikes and elliptical machines are the first thing you see. You can get your cardio workout […]

Fiver says NO to Snow!

Fiver in the Snow

Lucky for Fiver we rescued him from the street life or he wouldn’t be a happy cat today. Fiver rejected the snow! Usually he loves going on the RD but he’s not into the cold, wet weather. He was tempted though…

Cypress Inn is open

The Cypress Inn

UPDATE: The Cypress Inn is officially open –  their serving up coffee but no sign of the wine bar yet!  Initially when we spoke with workers (pre-opening) the plan was for the Cypress Inn to dual as a cafe by day, wine bar by night. Perhaps they’re waiting for a liquor license?  When we find out more information, we’ll update again. In the meantime, go and grab a cup, the coffee is great! 1706 STANHOPE ST RIDGEWOOD, NY 11385.

Late Bloomers

Okay, so maybe our last garden update was perhaps a tad morbid. I’d had a bad day. It turns out that it was also a little premature. The garden is full of surprising late bloomers! Mary’s area has had a nice early fall rejuvenation! Some of the cosmos I grew from seed took a while to get going and grew to be very tall, without blooming. Until now! And we’re getting several large tomatoes and dozens of cherry tomatoes every week. They make a great snack while watering.
