  One of the most active months in the Westchester calendar of events is the month of October.  Halloween is big news particularly in Sleepy Hollow and up the line along the Hudson River. Horseman’s Hollow at Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow NY was a smashing success last year.  It received great play and great reviews. Now it is back this year – bigger and better than ever.  By popular demand it has been extended to 12 evenings. It started last week but there is still time for a good scare before Halloween. This is perhaps one of the “darker events” that is not for the faint of heart and probably not suitable for small children.  It takes place at the historic Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow off of Route 9.   There are creatures of all kinds – earthly and otherwise and costuming t...

I know – we don’t have Monarchs in the United States of America.  But we do have Monarch butterflies!  Recently I had a problem with my back yard “containment system” for my dogs and that has sent me to the Sleepy Hollow Dog Park (in Kingsland Point Park) more often than usual.   While watching my guys play I noticed butterflies busily flying around a bush in the park.  Fortunately, I had the camera in the car.  So I was able to get a couple of shots.  The butteflies were a bit photo-shy and didn’t hover around all that long for the photo-shoot.  But I hope they appreciate how photogenic they really are!   © 2011 – Ruthmarie G.

Today I was reminded that nature sometimes clothes it creatures in the most remarkable ways.  I was at the Dog Park at Kingsland Point Park and was admittedly on poop patrol – cleaning up after my dogs.  While I was looking in the brown leaves on the ground…one of the leaves suddenly started hopping along the ground.   There it was ….. a tiny frog….so well camouflaged that I would never have seen it if I hadn’t been really focused on the ground.   I only had my phone camera – but here it is…can you even see my little amphibian friend? We have such wonderful nature trails and parks and preserves in Westchester.  Get out there and explore the rich nature that Westchester has to offer us all. © 2011 – Ruthmarie G.

Each year around this time, people come from miles around to see the blooming of the Peonies at the Rockefeller preserve.  Following the tragedy of September 11, 2001,  Yatsuka Cho, a town in Simane Prefecture, Japan offered a gift of over 500 peonies to the United States as a healing memorial.  It was also a gesture of solidarity and support from a former enemy of the United States who less than 60 years ago were locked in combat with us during World War II. The peony is considered to Japan’s most noble of flowers  and is the “signature flower” for the region. The Rockefeller Preserve accepted the gift and renovated the entrance to the Preserve in order to accommodate the peonies. This year when we go to the Rockefeller Preserve to admire the monument and see the awe inspiring site of...

The threatening storm had passed us by......and the sun was filtering through the cloud cover creating bright sunlight in the midst of dark cloud cover.  As the sunlight hit the trees, it created a stark contrast to the darker clouds above.  The trees looked literally as if they were on fire. Against the cloud cover, the effect was almost surreal.  I wish I could take full credit for the capture, but let's face it, it would be very difficult to take a bad photograph under such circumstances.A need for renewal.... Although it had been a busy and difficult  day, I was determined to fit in a hike.  I had just found out that my father’s cancer - kept in check by biologics and chemo - had returned full force.  We were  at the end of the line.  You know its bad when it is strongly suggested t...

After so much snow during the winter months and wet weather in general, it was great to get a nice day to simply go out and enjoy seeing the sun….I managed to escape to the Rockefeller Preserve around 4 PM for a late afternoon walk.  Although the spring has been late – I was determined to get some pictures that show spring is here….The peonies from the Peonies monument in honor of the victims of 9/11/2oo1 are starting to bud.  Soon they will be in full bloom, but in the meantime you can see the buds on the left.  The Cherry blossoms were in full bloom – so I was able to get a colorful shot. The wildlife were sunning themselves.  Even the waterfowl were having a great time in the sun.  I ran into some rather photogenic Mallards as well as a Cormorant – all willing to pose for me!    The ...

Hiring a professional carpet cleaning company is most of the time the best option when dealing with hard-to-get-out stains or rug repair. Especially Oriental rugs should not be repaired or cleaned by the owners because their fragile knots or thread and coloring can be ruined easily. To get started compile a list of nearby carpet cleaning companies by looking through the phone book or online. This list should be weeded out by asking questions and doing some additional research. Here are some tips: 1. Ask the prospective carpet cleaning company's representative whether the company has an Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. The IICRC is a nonprofit formed to monitor and set standards in the cleaning and restoration industries. Being certified by this nonprofit s...

A Sleepy Hollow NY resident surveys the land from his perch in the trees… Late this afternoon I was able to get Jade and Tundra to the dog park in Kingsland Point Park of Sleepy Hollow.  Even though no one was there – there was only one other car in the lot – I had the sense that I was not alone.  I starting looking around and then I looked up. Something was there…but  It wasn’t a person – it was a very handsome eagle silently perched – watching from his aerial  vantage point.  I could  feel his eyes.  He was watching, waiting, biding his time.  He seemed aware of me, but not the least alarmed. I was hoping he would stay still for a photo-op.  He waited politely while I got out the camera and attached the telephoto lens in the freezing cold.  I was able to get a few pictures, but at th...
