Our planters for the Kendal Hotel and Black Sheep Restaurant, located at 350 Main Street in Kendal Square, Cambridge, are planted up in late spring. We keep them going with daily watering and fertilizing.
The hydrangeas look more and more beautiful as the summer progresses and I found a wonderful complementary purplish-blue and white striped petunia at Cedar Rock Gardens this year. With a name like ‘Blueberry Muffin,’ how could one resist purchasing. ‘Blueberry Muffin’ is holding its own and filling out nicely. It’s a keeper and on the list for next year.
Next time you’re in Cambridge, stop by and check out the Kendall Firehouse Hotel and come on in for a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The food is simply outstanding and the staff are wonderfully friendly and professional.

Read the story below by Elaine Persons, and view slide_show of the Daniel B. Stepenuck Railroad Crossing.
Hi Joey, I am resending the short story we talked about. I would like you to take a picture of the place I am referring to. It is the Railroad Tracks at Cedar Street .My house is 112 Pleasant Street and the train runs very close to my fence. My husband and I bought this property seven years ago and it was in bad of need of repair inside and out. He passed away three years ago. I came close to loosing this property and was not able to finish the work he started along the tracks. The MBTA put up a sign in his name for the work he did complete he loved the train.Our intent was to clean this area of all the trash and debris and place flowers there. He even had the neighbors helping to pick up the trash (tons) we disposed of it at our expense. A year ago I meet a woman who not only became a very dear friend she had given me lessons on gardening. She has asked me to help her scale down her beautiful garden and in return has given me many beautiful flowers, trees, shrubs, bulbs.I have planted them along the tracks my husband started to beautify. Because of her knowledge and generosity I have been able to completed what he started.It the most sorrowful time of my life I found someone who was willing to share knowledge, generosity and friendship with someone she had just met and barley knew.We now share gardening, music witch is something my husband and I shared, she is teaching me to play his guitar, and we share music as a business as well as personal entertainment.It is so wonderful to know there are people out there who care and share their whole being.I could never thank Sheila Jones Schrank enough for all she has given me.But you can be sure I do thank her every chance I get.

Joey: I will be one of two (due to rain last Sunday) featured artists in the garden of the Sargent House Museum, this Sunday, August 14, from 12-4PM. I hope that you are able to post this event. Your blog is valuable publicity for so many people, especially artists!
Dorothy Englander, who will be drawing and painting in watercolor and ink
and Mary McCarl, who will be working in watercolor.
We will have works available to purchase. This event is part of a celebration of "Contemporary Artists at Historic Sites." Sargent House Director Kate Laurel Burgess-Mac Intosh conceived of this collaboration of the old and the new. It is a special opportunity for visitors to observe contemporary artists at work in a historic setting. The museum is located at 49 Middle Street, where it can be entered; the garden and the museum are accessible through the wrought iron gate on Main Street as well (next to La Trattoria).
We look forward to the weather cooperating, and to seeing many people there to see our artwork and to visit the museum.
