#tbt from that Summer I rode my Bike around Montauk



























This isn't actually my bike, but it was a prettier more picturesque bike than the one I rode. This view of the Long Island Sound backdrop helps a lot too.

Does anyone know the name of this lovely flower?




























Such a beautiful ground cover that seems to propagate easily in the shade with the brightest yellow flower I think I've ever seen. As blustery as it has been, the sunlight has been beautiful during certain times of the day. This picture was taken earlier this morning.

Introducing the Long Island Lent Lily




























I had no idea there was such a thing. Actually this flower doesn't entirely go by this name. According to Teleflora, the botanic name is Narcissus - but in England, because of its long association with Lent, this gorgeous flower is known as the "Lent Lily".
Check out these Tulips & Daffodils in the same flower patch from Spring 2014

Bobi's Easter Sunday Cake





























My mom claims she can never make as good a lemon orange cake as her grandmother. I can't imagine this cake tasting any better. I always start out with one sliver.
Bobi is known far and wide on Long Island for her cake decorating/baking skills. Notice the live flowers atop this beauty, so simple yet elegantly decorated.
