A trip back in time to the first decades of the 20th century at Oheka Castle in Huntington. I was there for Louise Millmann’s retirement celebration lunch. With a small amount of editing in Lightroom mobile the photos make the era come alive.

These images were posted on Facebook during the first week of the new year. Next week I’ll expand the blog to include more images that were not posted on Facebook. I need to “stretch my wings” and spend some time each day on my creative endeavors. I don’t know if I’ve been blocked, lazy, or just overwhelmed with everything else life throws at me!  

My Garden in Spring … Rhodedendrons and Azalesare in full bloom. Last fall I planted garlic in my vegetable garden and I have plants that are obviously traditional garlic, but I also have plants with beautiful purple flowers — all I can think of is that I palnted Elephant garlic too. Lastly, the first Irises are blooming.
