The PLOT Thickens (Re Emily)


The last time I posted here on Blogger, which was January the Fourteenth, I made a link available re a tribute I'd written in honor of Emily, the Baltimore oriole featured in the images above and below this narrative.

"PRESS" RELEASE: Tribute to Emily (a LONE Baltimore oriole)


For those of you who do not "do Facebook" or read posts on hometalk or tumblr, but, who might be interested in what happened to Emily, (who was introduced here on Blogger in November 2013), and who is the lone Baltimore oriole pictured above (alighting on a bird bath in my urban — NYC — garden); I have posted a tribute to her that also addresses the loss of visiting birds, and you may read it by clicking here.

"another year over AND a new one just begun . . . " PART ONE (FOR January 2013)


On this tenth day of the new year, my champagne loving character (pictured above) and I offer you, dear reader, cheers and all good wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2014.

Usually by this time in a given January here on TLLG's Blogger pages, I have offered my salutations, spoken about resolutions, written reflections on The Feast of the Epiphany as well as reflections on Three Kings Day; and I have even been in the process of writing a year-end reflection of the comings and goings in my urban (NYC) terrace garden.

This year, 2014  salutations were posted on TLLG's FB Page, and mentions of Epiphany with salutations were discussed on hometalk. As for 2014's Three King's Day, I posted info about it on TLLG's FB Page as well as hometalk, where I offered new content re specifics of traditions to honor the day. 

Alas, I did not get the chance to post anything here on Blogger, but please don't feel slighted as I am even further behind in my "correspondence" with my tumblr community!

In any event, having just told you where I've been spending my blogging energies, I will tell you that in terms of my annual year-end reflections on comings and goings in my rooftop garden, I've "saved" the topic for the community I have here (but may refer others, especially those interested in gardening, to this content).

Last year's year-end review (for 2012) spanned a number of entries here on Blogger (fifteen) from January 5, 2013 through January 20, 2013

My year-end review for 2013 will be set up in a similar manner but will not span as many entries. For 2012's garden circumstances included coping with a few upheavals in my garden such a so-called building renovation, preparing for a hurricane that was ultimately named Super Storm Sandy which was followed by preparing for a nor' easter

Thankfully, the aforementioned events were not a part of my 2013 gardening endeavors!

The format for my 2013 garden year-end review will span twelve months as I'll use the first day of a given month to take a look back. 

And now without further ado, the 2013 year-end garden review!
