Last Roses of Summer

Summer hasn’t quite finished in NYC.
The leaves haven’t turned.
Perennials are still blooming.
The Roses are having their last hurrah.

Umm- was this a Bordello?

It started with a lovely seafood lunch, topped off with a chocolate mousse.
The walk up the hill offered a chance for some views:

And some shopping:

Some of which was in a Bordello:

Actually, it was a very stately house that was a single family home (palace) for many years until the family couldn’t afford the upkeep.  Part of the house was used as a movie set for two years – a French film for which the set designers created the nudes in the entry way and double stair case. Of course, dievca had to ask if it was a house ill-repute.

And a final walk through a park with ancient trees, Magnolia and other:

And a final beer for the way home:

Swedish Smile – Good Morning!

Have a good day and a good week.


Beach, options.

Beach Football – Los Angeles Public Library

Hmmm, the humidity has dropped. The first college football game has been played.
dievca is still interested in heading to the beach.
Maybe she can combine the summer and fall activities together?
Nah, after last night, she’d rather just sleep in the sun.

An unexpected pleasure – Sunflowers

“True friends are like bright sunflowers that never fade away, even over distance and time.”

Marie Williams Johnstone

An unexpected pleasure in the middle of NYC. dievca grew up with a neighbor who grew large sunflowers in their backyard – it is a childhood pleasure to see one. There is a second sunflower that is so heavy with seeds, the head is drooping.
