It’s that time of year, when the air starts to taste different, when you can see the far side of winter and off in the distance — yes for sure, that’s definitely spring. Still, don’t be fooled into letting down your guard, we could possibly still have a lot of cold to get through but on sunny days. I too want to go out there and do some gardening, and yes, I too am sick of weeding (although I did get a nifty new longer handled Japanese weeding hoe that I’m very excited about. I still can’t kneel or squat down without pain in my new knee). So, what to do?
I recently attended an event where we were instructed to close our eyes and envision our ideal 2040 and then report to the room what changes in our lives we could make to head towards that future. Not surprisingly, a great many individuals declared their first step would be to grow their own food. Everyone said ‘Bravo”, but inside I shuddered a little. I’ve watched many folks set out on this same path, get totally overwhelmed, and not only fail and feel miserable, but also develop a real aversion to gardening.
For the first time in what feels like decades, the New England Patriots aren’t stepping foot near the Super Bowl — and, for some, that’s reason enough for celebration.
The people have spoken, and they have chosen Blaze Makoid Architecture.
Four years ago, Emily Goldstein and Katharine Battle founded Caplan Rose, a company offering small, curated, private tours of gardens on the British countryside. This year, Caplan Rose will spearhead two spring tours, the first to Cotswold and the second to Somerset and Cornwall. The latter is already sold out, speaking to the concept’s popularity. Experience-driven travel has become increasingly sought after in recent years, and Goldstein and Battle have capitalized on the living, breathing art exhibit of the English garden.
As winters on the East End of Long Island get gradually — and not-so-gradually — warmer, the tick population, which was once controlled by consistent low temperatures, has extended its active season. Ticks, which hibernate at temperatures below 35, have renewed their bloodlust in recent years, encouraging many homeowners to seek winter treatment for a problem that used to be seasonal.

Having recently earned accredited member status for the eighth year from the National Home Watch Association, an organization formed in order to establish and maintain the highest industry standards for home watch and absentee homeowner services throughout the United States and Canada, C’s Home and Office Management founders Cynthia and Christopher Capalbo reflected last week on what makes their Sag Harbor business a success.
The two partners of F&M Star Inc. who need a “certificate of appropriateness” from the Sag Harbor Historic Preservation and Architectural Review Board (HPARB) to renovate a 19th-century house at 11 Burke Street sparred again with the board at its July 11 meeting. Instead of the quick decision they wanted, their case was tabled once again, this time to July 25.
The Sag Harbor House Tour on Friday, July 19, offers a walk through Sag Harbor history, from the Revolutionary War era to today.
With its almost austere simplicity, its unusual 12-over-12 sash windows, its peeling gray paint, rotting white trim and weedy growth along its picket fence, the old house just south of the Sag Harbor’s business district at 156 Main Street has stood empty and forlorn for years, its front door padlocked from the outside.
