Volume 4, Issue #1

Well, the days are getting longer, the weather is a little warmer, and there are small signs of spring popping up in gardens all across Long Island. It's time to wake from our winter hibernation and start thinking about the warmer days ahead.

That's not to say winter is completely over. You know how Mother Nature likes to toy with us, so I’m preparing myself for one more storm before we finally say goodbye to winter for good.

In the meantime I'm looking forward to some corned beef and cabbage. St. Patrick's Day is what really marks the start of spring for me. If you love a parade chances are you won't have to go far to find one. Almost every community celebrates St. Patty's Day with a parade with some, like East Islip, happening today.

Snow drops blooming in an acorn strewn garden

The snow melted a couple of days ago and look what I found blooming underneath. Snow Drops, aptly named, are the very first signs of spring in my garden (although I've seen some crocuses coming up here and there).


There are still 2 weekends left in Long Island Winterfest, a series of events designed to promote Long Island's east end during the slowest part pf the year. This year's theme is Jazz on the Vine and offers 70 free jazz concerts at wineries and other venues on the north fork.

With 40 concerts to go you still have a chance to hear some outstanding jazz musicians live right here on Long Island. See calendar here:

The Long Island Blog

I took 3 months off from this newsletter, so if you haven't been following the blog on your own there are a few things to catch up on. The boat burning at the Long Island Maritime Museum, and a lot of snow in particular.

See it all on the Long Island Blog.

Until next time...
