greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – December 8, 2017

Another heavy period on the computer this with getting a Playlist for Picture Memories of Yorkville together. Just finished this project earlier this evening and posted a link to several groups on Facebook. It’s basically 29 videos covering hundreds of pictures collected over the years on assorted websites.

So, with that project finished, on to another for next week, here goes with this weeks Friday Roundup.

NOTE: Also, I’m still working on doing an intro for the assorted groups on Facebook under my Admin and putting a new intro for each group and the respective videos that I have related to that facebook group. Like I said, use the comment section to engage other visitors who leave comments on the videos and not only the facebook postings.

greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – December 1, 2017

Starting off the last month of the year on December 1st and trying to really get used to this but babysitting came to the forefront for three days this week doing the greendougherty.blog and a lot of time spent putting out an updated Out West Medical Employers took over most of my time.

So, with that purpose in mind, here goes with this weeks Friday Roundup.

greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – November 10, 2017

First off, today, November 10, 2017, is the U.S. Marine  Corps birthday, the 242nd Birthday since its founding in 1775. Oorah!

Now, getting back to the Friday Roundup.

The first thing that I’m concentrating on is doing a little editing on my KA Favorite Tunes, or, as I know them as Kick-Ass Favorite Tunes. Right now, we’re at 100+ but I know for sure that this list will grow if I get support (Subscribers).

Just added a few funnies from my email from Jim.

greendougherty.Blog – How To Edit a YouTube Playlist

This is a quick step set of instructions (How to Edit a YouTube Playlist) that I needed to understand the basic instructions to get to one particular Playlist from my YouTube Playlist and see how many times it was viewed. I did a lot of jumping around because there is no straight answer from my point of view when I tried to click on a Playlist for a straight answer as to how many times the Playlist was viewed. It took a bit of time and I set up the following slides using another software program to see what I found and share it with everyone else. I may not get all the answers in this first set of slides but will give as many details for each level. So here goes.

Note: After all this, I’m still looking for one page on YouTube that can show me all of my Playlist on one page with the number of tunes in that Playlist and the number of times that it was viewed (on one page). What was I thinking?

This step process takes you from the Creator Studio and working with your Video Manager.

Videos in Video Manager

After accessing the menu from the Creator Studio, I ended up with this view. Under the Video Manager Index, I was interested in looking at my Playlists.

Select Playlist

From that view, I scroll down to Playlist in the Video Manager Directory and click on Playlists. This will open up my Playlist where Ii will scroll down to the Playlist that I want to edit.

Select U Favorite Tune Playlist

For this presentation, I click on the “U” Playlist that I am currently working with at the moment. This will open up the U Favorite Tunes Playlist which will allow me to work on several icons/dialog boxes related to every Playlist.

Click on Edit of U Favorite Tunes

I’m not sure at this stage of the instructions if this page comes up but when it did, I clicked on the EDIT and it brought me to the following page to start editing the assorted information on the U Favorite Tunes.

Tagged Areas

The above red circled areas are areas of the Playlist that can be edited or changed. The following areas are detailed below but I’ll give you a list of the items that can be added to and/or edited on your Playlist.

  • Globe icon – Access Playlist Settings
  • Change Playlist Title – “U Favorite Tunes”
  • Three Dots on Top Right Side – Delete playlist, Add all to, and Translate playlist info
  • Description of the Playlist – Add a short description about the Playlist in this section.
  • Play all – Clicking on this icon will play all the tunes in that Playlist.
  • Share Button – Allows the ability to Share, Embed and Email this Playlist. the Share Button allows you to select which of the following websites that you want to share with: Pinterest, Twitter, Reddit, Blogger, Facebook, Tumblr, Google+, BKOHTAKTE/LinkedIn/Stumbleupon. Click on the Embed Button and you’ll get a code to embed your playlist. The Email Icon opens up a new box that allows you to enter in the name of the email that you want the email sent to and a box to enter a description and also a brief explanation of the reason you are sending the email.
  • Add Videos – Clicking on this button opens up a new dialog box which allows you to Add video to the playlist via Video search, URL, and Your YouTube videos. The Video search button opens up a dialog box that allows you to search for a video on YouTube. By clicking on the URL, you can paste the YouTube URL into the box. Finally, by clicking on Your YouTube Videos, you are given the ability to pick a video from your YouTube account.
  • Toggle Button – This button deals with each tune on your Playlist and gives you the ability to change the position of each individual tune. By clicking on the icon, you can drag the tune up or down within the Playlist. I like to keep the tunes by artist’s name, alphabetically.
  • X Icon  – This button on the top right side of each tune allows you the ability to delete the tune by just clicking on the X and the tune is deleted from your Playlist.
  • More Button – By clicking on the More Button, you are giving the option to do the following with each particular tune. The options are Move to top, Move to the Bottom, Add/edit notes (of tune), and Set as playlist thumbnail. By clicking on Move to top, the playlist will move to the top of the Playlist. By Clicking on Move to the Bottom, this helped me in rearranging the tunes when I was doing them by alphabet. When I clicked on Add/edit notes, I was able to add information to the tune that may not have been listed in the original description. Finally, this last button, Set as playlist thumbnail, gives one the ability to use a great artist or album cover as a thumbnail for this Playlist.

Ability to Edit or Move or Delete Tune

Here is a view of the More Button open up a drop-down menu. This particular menu allows you to Move to top, Move to bottom, Add/edit notes, or Set as your playlist thumbnail.

Ability to Edit Each Tune for Details

In this section of the Playlist, you have the ability to Add/edit notes. In the yellow box, I have added the name of the group and the song title. I found that most people that upload tunes to YouTube forget an essential point in the description or misspell a name or leave out some basic tune information. I like to have the name of the group or artist, in the beginning, name of the tune and the year that it was recorded

Now, I’ll take you through, randomly, a few of the assorted dialog boxes on this page that allow you to make several changes to the Playlist.

Add Videos to Playlist

This particular box allows you to Add videos to this playlist.

Play Selection Box

This dialog box allows you to Play all of the Playlist tunes.

How to Share This Playlist

By clicking on the Share button allows you to

Who to Share Playlist with Icons

At this point in my Playlist, I’m able to Share, Embed or Email my Playlist. The Share button allows you to Share with the following resources: Pinterest/Twitter/Reddit/Blogger/Facebook/

Tumblr/Google+/Bkohtakte/LinkedIn/Stumbleupon

At this time, I did not click on the Embed or Email Button.

Playlist Settings

The Playlist Settings.

Playlist Settings Details

The Playlist Settings button takes you to this section which allows you to make changes to Basic, Auto Add and Collaborate. I did not look into at the moment.

Allows the ability to toggle Each Tune up and down

This section of the video has a small star icon that appears when you hover over the area with your cursor. The cross appears that you can use to take and drag the video up or down the section of the Playlist.

Search YouTube for Videos to Add to Playlist

When you click on Add videos, you will be brought to this menu page that lets you search for a particular video that you want to add to this Playlist.

Delete Playlist

All of these sections that I am highlighting in yellow and blue I am calling dialog/instruction boxes. This particular box gives you the options to Delete Playlist, Add all to, and Translate into.

Public Viewing Icon

This area highlights a Globe icon which allows everyone to see the video. If you click on the Globe Icon, it will take you to the Playlist Settings where you can make changes to who can see your videos.

How to Use Movie Maker to Make a Movie for YouTube – October 6, 2017

Marty Dougherty #greendougherty #yorkville #doughertygarden (#doughertypalms #doughertypalms and #palmsofthedoughertygarden#nostalgia #oldies(doowop)music #irishaoritaliano #jobsoutwest #corporateamerica #lifeintheusmarines #afewfunnies – doherty167 on  Pinterest

_______________________________________________________
I’m in the process of adding Cards and End Cards to some of the videos that I have on YouTube. It’s a long, tedious job but the end game is to see if I can increase viewership to my garden videos. If I can crack the system, I’ll play around with the Yorkville pictures that I can convert to video and see if I can duplicate the effort in that group of pictures and share with everyone.

 

Before I get to that section of the YouTube and working with Cards and End Cards, I’ll introduce the process of trying to make a movie via Movie Maker and all the fun I was having trying to understand (WTF) what was going on while in Movie Maker.
First, I open up Movie Maker and click on Add Pictures
01 Add Pictures
Note: I use a program called Snag It that enables me to take a picture of the page, or, portion of the page that I am working on at the moment.
I’m working on the next issue of my garden blog and will be using this Movie Maker to issue my Dougherty Garden Blog. I’ll be using 19 pictures from my garden taken on October 5, 2017.
02 All Pictures Added
This is how the Movie Maker looks like with the pictures added. Notice that the pink area below the picture shows a description “DCIM\100SPORT” which I believe is the description on each picture assigned by my camera that I am using. I’ll show you how to change that description.
03 Sample Picture
This is the first picture and I have to use another tool in order to catch a few steps that are not available to use with Snag It. This is where my camera comes out to capture what I can’t grab a picture of with Snag It.
04 Click on Properties in Dialog Box
Right-click on the mouse and go down to the Properties and click on Properties.
05 Change Description to Picture
Forgive the clarity of this picture but I’ll try to get a better picture before I finish this blog. For now, the Title is: DCIM\100SPORT. It is here where you can change the description to the picture to the one that you want to show up in Movie Maker as the name of the picture.
06 Description Changes
As you can see in the above picture, the Title of the picture is now correct. The only trouble is that this feature must be changed before you Add the pictures to Movie Maker. One of the things that I do now is to make sure that the Title of the picture is correct in the Title section of the Properties. I was tending to have problems with my Movie Maker when I had to add the name to the picture in Movie Maker.
This was one of the problems that I was having and it was a headache for me. Now, when I do a project that involves pictures, I make sure that the Title is complete and accurate for all the pictures before I add them to Movie Maker.
07 Title of all Pictures Changed
As you can see, all of the Titles of these pictures are now complete and in Movie Maker. Now, I can continue with the next step in the process of how I make a movie of my pictures in the garden.
This will be a simple video of how to make a simple video. I’ll do the basics of getting a Title and the Credit for a video to keep it simple.
08 Click on Title
Using the Home Index, click on Title and a Blank Black Box will appear on your Movie Maker for you to use to enter the Title of your movie. Click on the Black Box and “My Movie Title” will appear and you can change that to the name of the movie you are working on.
09 Title of the Movie
I made the change to “Today in the Dougherty Garden” as the title of my movie in Movie Maker. I normally use a date with my blog but for simplicity’s sake, I’ll just do the Title for now.
10 Credits for Movie
This section is for adding Credits to the end of the video.
DCIM100SPORT
Drop Down Menu for End of Video Use
Sorry about the blurriness of the picture but I’m using a hand camera to take these pictures of the screen. Snag It doesn’t capture the picture. When I click on Credits, I get the Drop Down Menu. Then, when I click on Snag It, the Drop Down menu disappears. So, I have to use the camera to catch the Drop Down Menu.. I’ll try a Copy and Paste on another screen later to see if that will work.
12 Credit Screen
Credit Screen
13 Director Screen
Directed By Screen
14 Starring Screen
Starring Screen
15 Filmed Screen
Filmed on Location Screen
16 Soundtrack Screen
Soundtrack Screen
The above pictures, End Screen pictures, can be altered in any manner to let you tell your viewers anything about the video and who produced it and add further information that you would like the viewer to see. You can not add any live links at this point in these Credits. That can be accomplished, to a degree using, Cards and End Screen Annotations.
The Cards and End Screen Annotations are primarily YouTube tools that lets you promote other Channels and Videos, your Playlist or Videos on the Playlist.
The first of the end of your video starts with the Credits Screen. Everything that you see on the screen can be changed or adjusted…fonts, size of fonts and what you want to do as Credits…you can even change Credits to another word. It’s all up to you and what you want to say on each one of these screens.
Again, for simplicity’s sake, I’ll go through the Credits that I use on this video for my purpose. You can get creative on your end and do whatever you want to and change or add as many Credits as you want.  All you have to do is change the name of the page and what the Credits are for.
Link for the Finished Video on the Dougherty Garden
For now, this is as simple as it gets for making a movie out of still pictures. If you are making a movie from a movie, which I have not done so far, this is all about making a movie from pictures. My purpose here was to show how to do a movie with pictures.  I have to do videos in the near future and will tackle that in a future blog and video.
For now, I’ll convert this blog into a video and possibly add some additional comments in the video about this procedure.

greendougherty.Blog – Hurricane Irma

Just had our insurance adjuster look at our back yard and found out why we may not get a penny on hurricane damage because the damage to the yard damaged our yard not a neigbor’s yard. Here’s a picture of what happened in the Dougherty Garden from Hurricane Irma on September 10, 2017.

The Dougherty Garden – Hawaiian Ti Plant – September 6, 2017

Featured

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the more popular plants in the Dougherty Garden is that of the Hawaiian Ti plant. The Hawaiian Ti plant has two versions in the Dougherty Garden. onw is the green leafed version and the other is the pink leafed version.

Scientific Name: Cordyline fruiticosa

Common Name: Hawaiian Ti

Over the years, I have produced a few videos on the Hawaiian Ti plant and here are the lniks to these videos.

COMING SOON: Recent video of the Hawaiian Ti plants growing in the Dougherty Garden, including young plants.

Pink Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. This is part of the Cordyline series of plants. Most of this series of plants have the tell tale trunk.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Green Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. You can see from this picture this is not a leggy plant.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The pink version of the Hawaiian Ti plant add a bit of color to the Dougherty Garden. What I love about this plant is that if somebody wants to grow one of these plants, all I have to do is make a cutting and dust the bottom with some rooting hormone and pot it up and in a few weeks we have a new Hawaiian Ti plant. You can even take this cutting and place the cutting in a glass of water and in a short operiod of time, roots develop.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Seed pods from a green leafed Hawaiian Ti plant.

At this point in  time I labeled the plant #742. Here are a few cuittings that I had taken from a Hawaiian Ti plant that had a leggy look.  I cut a section away asnd cut them into several section and potted them in this pot.

greendougherty.Blog – Today in the Dougherty Garden – September 3, 2017

Featured

The first in the Dougherty Garden from the new greendougherty.Blog featuring a post from Today in the Dougherty Garden. Since I’m working with a limited library, grab the pictures as I’ll delete older piuctures so that I don’t overload the library. Cutting costs on this end. Also, Today in the Dougherty Garden will combine all plants (palms, flowers, tropical plants, and then some…) into one blog and I’ll try and do a video of each blog. Enjoy.

My three unknown plants at the moment. So many plants change hands over time that one forgets to write down the name and we’re subjected to searching the internet for plant names. I’ll do a blogs on just these plants the next time because they are so unusual.

Today in the Dougherty Garden – August 24, 2017

Another trip through the Dougherty Garden. Some of the pictures are from the collection over the years and most are from my current garden. Enjoy. Open to any questions, just use the comment box below.

Beautiful Bird of Paradise flower in all it s glory.

While visiting a medical center in North Palm Beach, I came across this Bismarckia palm tree that was in the midst of pumping out seed bracts. Look at the canopy of the Bismarckia palm tree and see the numerous bracts of seeds that are getting ready to fall. As I got close to the palm tree, I always look at the base of a palm tree to see if there are any seeds. I was caught by surprise and saw a bunch of seeds and several that had already sprouted a seedling. I tried to pry one or two of the seedlings out of the ground but was not able to budge any of the seedlings. I opted for grabbing a few of the seeds that you will see in the following picture, to the right, are large back seeds.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The majority of the seeds above are from the Solitaire palm tree and the small pot to the right with a few large seeds are from the Bismarckia palm tree.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A Brazilian Needle palm tree that was the victim of a tree limb that fell on its crown that was being cut down. I cut away all of the damaged leaves and let it alone to see if the palm survived and it looks to be healthy again. this area is my shade area for plants.

Here is the tree that was cut down abourt a month or so, ago. I’m in the process of reclaiming the area for more plants that are not as big. The stump has to go.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My shade area of the garden with a Cabbage palm tree on the right that has quite a few different plants growing in the base of the palm tree leaves. The fern that you see is very aggressive and throws off lateral shoots and in a short period of time can take over an area. The good part is that you can pull these plants out and most of the lateral roots.

Striped Leaf Plant

Striped Leaf plant that is a common house plant and that I call the plant that will not die. I planted this in the ground twice in a shaded area trying to get it to adapt. I put it back in a pot and it seems to be doing fine at the moment.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A Jamaican Tall Coconut palm tree in the Dougherty Garden. It produced one Coconut last year but seems to be on track to increase Coconut production this summer.

Today in the Dougherty Garden – August 22, 2017

I’m still toying with the idea of what to use for a header picture on this garden blog and may have to go to designing one that I’ll make up fom all the pictures. That is still up in the air and I’ll probably see how it looks without a featured image as they call it for this post. For now, let’s get back to Today in the Dougherty Garden.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Garden Area C is presently going through a renovation and cleaning of the weeds that seem to be very heavy this year. This is the area that I hand  cut the edging and the reasson that it is so jagged at the moment.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another section of the Garden Area C where I have a few Buddha Belly plants sitting in the sun. Waiting for September to do the edging for this area.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Typical Cabbage palm tree found in a commercial landscape all over South Florida. Most Cabbage palm trees will survive in a few colder areas north of our area in South Florida.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Garden Area C with a Hawaiian Ti plant with green leaves close to the ground. The Solitaire palm tree has two plants at the base of the palm tree. The one on the left side of the palm tree is that of a Climbing Orchid that has two flowers at the moment. The plant to the right at th base is a Climbing Cactus plant that I’m in the process of attaching to the Solitaire palm tree.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Climbing Orchids with blooms. On the bottom with two terra cotta pots flipped on their sides by the local birds looking for food, are a few baby Climbing Orchids that I separated from the mother plant a while back.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Close up view of the Climbing Orchid plant on the Solitaire palm tree.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The center terra cotta pot has a Cycad seed in the middle, light beige, that just put out a young leaf with the rootdown in the soil. This is a Cardboard cycad.

DCIM100SPORT

One of the edging areas in the Dougherty Garden that was easy to edge.

The above is a collage of sorts of a Fern growing through a Mushroom plant in the Dougherty Garden. I’ll see if I can get a better close up picture now that I had cleared away a lot of the weeds in the area.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the pots that I put a few garlic cloves that are having a hard time putting out a stem. I’m wondering if they were genetically modified?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the remains of the Sleeping Hibiscus plants that I had removed from the Hibiscus Hedge a ew months ago. These were the remnants of the base portion of the plant that i had removed from the ground where the hedge was located. Apparently, the roots were still active and here is the proof that I have a few Sleeping Hibiscus plants..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEW01 is the seeds that I received from my friend in California for Mexican Bird of Paradise that seemed off to a good start but fell to the extreme heat of the South Florida sun and all baby seedlings dried out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Three plants from left to right are a pot of Queen palmseeds, middle plant is that of two Hawaiian Ti plants and a potted punknown palmseedling.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is my Wandering Jew ground cover that is getting comfortable in it new location. I put down a fresh load of no float mulch to hold back soem of the wees that are growin very fast, even witht he hot sunny days that we have been having lately.

That covers the latest from Today in the Dougherty Garden and what plants are making my day in the Dougherty Garden.

greendougherty.Blog – Irisha or Italiano

dominick iacone in mags 013111

Another one of the blogs that I do periodically is that of the Irisha or Italiano blog which related to my conversion to the Italian race, or, marrying an Italian. The Irisha or Italiano blog deals with that conversion period and the stories and the peiople that I met along that journey. What makes the stories a little funny is that when I joined the family, my father-in-law had a parkign lot in the middle of Little Italy and Chinatown on Hester Street, the Godfather saga was being filmed, the FBI and TV crews were following the boys on a regular basis getting ratings, pretty much like today, and via my father-in-law, I got to meet some of these people and heard a lot of stories.

Today’s Plant in the Dougherty Garden on August 10, 2017 – Bird of Paradise

Featured

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the Bird of Paradise in the Dougherty Garden as of August 11, 2017. It’s not a completely sunny area because the plant is surrounded by a Coconut and Solitaire palm trees but seems to be doing alright in this location. There are about ten Bird of Paradise plants in this cluster planting. I love when they sell these plants in garden centers to get the buyer’s attention because of the amount of plants in one pot. If you check the mature Bird of Paradise plant below, You’ll notice several Bird of Paradise plants in that large plant.

The Bird of Paradise plant is a plant that once it is comfortable, it will produce little pups from the base of the plant. The Bird of Paradise loves full sun and grows with out any problems. I did not have pest problems while this plant was in the Dougherty Garden. If you are careful, you can capture one of these little pups to give to a friend as long as you are able toget a section that has roots at the bottom.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After taking a picture of the Bird of Paradise plant I took a picture of the most recent bloom om the plant. I’m anxious to do a disecction of this bloom when it dries out to see if the seeds are being produced.

This series of blogs will record for posterity some of the plants that were part of the Dougherty Garden over the years and some that are still are part of the Dougherty Garden. One of those plants is that of the Bird of Paradise. I originaly had a white Bird of Paradise and spent the beter part of a day removing it from the space that it as in in order to ret anothe rplant in the Dougherty garden. Last year I received a Bird of Paradise with a yellow flowers.

My beautiful picture

This is the Bird of Paradise with white flowers that was a part of the Dougherty Garden. The Bird of Paradise was still a very active plant in the Dougherty Garden in 2011 when this picture was taken. It was a few years later that I decided that I had to remove the Bird of Paradise because it was growing really tall with new shots coming out on the bottom.

553 Bird of Paradise with White Flowers on 090109

It took a bit of time to remove the Bird of Paradise because I had to use a fold a way hand saw with a nice serated cutting edge to cut into each plant that was about four inched in diameter. After I removed all the top growth, I had to use the saw to cut into the rot system to make sure thsat I had completely removed the Bird of Paradise. IT’s a beautiful plant but I do have second thoughts thinking about what it wil look like in a few years.

553 White Bird of Paradise Seeds on 101110

When I was taking the Bird of Paradise out of the ground I figured that it was an opportune time to capture as many seeds as possible before the plant was completely removed form the garden. Here are a few o the seeds that I was able to save at the time.

And the final view of my Bird of Paradise plant from the Dougherty Garden. If you have any questions about the Bird of Paradise, I’ll try and answer your question. I’ll be making an index of sorts for all the plants that will be listed in the Dougherty Garden Plant of the day.

Enjoy growing green every day,

greendougherty.Blog – Today in the Dougherty Garden

Featured

I’m still trying to get back into a daily rhythm but mother nature is in full control at the moment and we’ll have to roll with the punches. Fortunately, there has been a short lull in activity and we’ll go on with a several garden pictures. Like I said in an earlier post, these are pictures from the Dougherty Garden over time which are mingled with recent pictures of activity in the Dougherty Garden. Enjoy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the base of the Cabbage palm tree with a lot of plant activity. The bottom plant is a Rabbit’s Foot Fern/Hare Fern which has been on the base of this Cabbage palm tree for years. The plant above the Rabbit Foot Fern is a Pothos plant which I cut back every so often but continues to grow up the base of the trunk with the leaves growing bigger in each new leaf.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Several seeds that I received for the Mexican Red Bird of Paradise – Caesalpinia pulcherrima from my friend Bob. Two of the seeds have aleardy set out roots and we’re justing sitting back to see the first leaf appear from the pot. I can’t wait to see this first bloom.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One view of the Bird of Paradise flower. I had the white Bird of Paradise plant in the Dougherty Garden several years ago before cutting it down as it was taking up too much plant area.

Looking at the bottom of a Cabbage palm tree canopy which has several plants growing up there.  The bottom plant is that of a Philodendron that has been grpowing in the boot section of the Cabbage palm tree. The Cabbage palm tree has many crevaces that catch flying seeds on windy days.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is one of my unknown plants at the moment. The plant in the middle is the mother plant and the two on each side are her pups that were just very small seedlings when I first received this plant. I have to check my plant source to see if there is a proper name.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is my grandpa stone from Kylie and RJ for Father’s Day which is planted between their palm trees, a Teddy Bear palm tree and a Buccaneer palm tree.

A few flowers from the Heliconia plant hat is used by some as a barometer for their garden. The last I remember from this plant’s presentation is that if the leaves are light green that the fertilizer requirements are not up to standards. I was told that the leaves must be dark greem for a healthy garden.

This will be the new understory garden work area in the Dougherty Garden and I’ll use the area for making a new series on plants of the Dougherty Garden and just make a emphasis just on that particular plant.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are a few pots of Christmas palm tree seedlings enjoying the sun in the Dougherty Garden on 080417.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

More Hibiscus cuttings that were the result of maintaining the plants in the Dougherty Garden. I was doing some quick maintenance in the Dougherty Garden by cutting back most of the plants in the new garden area where I’ll do a few pictures and videos of the plants in the Dougherty Garden. These plants were cuttings from cuttings and just planted in these pots with out the use of a rooting hormone. Most times, It’ll work on a few planrs. We’ll see because the Florida sun has been very hot this year.

Okay, that was today in the Dougherty Garden. Enjoy the pictures. Any questions, we’re all ears and maybe able to help you with a question or two. Stop by the comments section and let us know. Also, I’ll be doing a video of sorts with these pictures too and the videos also has a comments section for your convenience.

Enjoy growing green 24/7 in the Dougherty Garden.

Moonlows

Here is another group from the 1950’s and that great music that came from that era. One of the groups that made a direct impression with their style of music is that of the Moonglows. Two leads from that group were Bobby Lester and Harvey Fuqua.

All these tunes from the Moonglows were found on You Tube with the ecxception of a few. I’ll go through a few of the tunes that were part of my favorites of all times and give them to you below.

Here is the link to the Moonglows and the 72 tunes that I found on You Tube. A few may be duplicates but most are later versions and Live sessions. Enjoy.

greendougherty.Blog – Yorkville – 89th Street in Pictures

Featured

park lane 90th street

Since I started the greendougherty.Blog, it was inevitable that I would start a Yorkville spin every once in a while. It’s that time and we’ll start with the Streets of Yorkville. In this case, I chose 89th Street because it left a special niche in my heart for those moments from the past.

I added a picture of the Park Lane Movie House on 90th Street because my little story relates to looking at the other side of the Park Lane Movie House that is on 89th Street on the corner of 1st Avenue, on the north side of the street. Across from the Park Lane is a build that had an alcove of sorts that one could sit in. It was on the street side and I guess that was why the window was shut off and bricked off but enough for one to sit in.

It was in this alcove that I was able to meet one of the lovelies of 89th Street. I remember  a story that I heard about a machine gun that was place on the roof of this movie house and was discussing this fact with the lass. I always wondered if it was folklore or what.

For now, a few pictures of 89th Street. Did you live on 89th Street? Share some memories.

89th street ne corner. - Copy

I have this building as an old building on 89th Street and York Avenue and found the address but have since misplaced it. There is a steeple of sorts in the background. So, if that rings a bells with anyone, please let me know if you can shed some light on this building and its location.

greendougherty.Blog – Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Crests

Featured

Crests

Another group that falls into one of my favorite groups is that of the Crests, or, Johnny Maestro and the Crests. The lead singer of the Crests, Johnny Maestro, recently passed away and was overlooked by the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, unfortunately.

Fortunately, for the rest of us, we have all the recordings, and a few that I’m still looking for to share with everyone. My first memory of a tune by Johnny Maestro and the Crests is that of “My Juanita”. It was in the candy store on First Avenue on 91st Street and it would always be playing on the jukebox. Enjoy.

My Juanita by Johnny Maestro and the Crests

Another very popular tune form the Johnny Maestro and the Crests is that of Sixteen Candles, that was the age of most of the people that loved Johnny Maestro and the Crests.

Sixteen Candles by Johnny Maestro and the Crests

And the tune by Johnny Maestro and the Crests that had you dancing with your Sweetest One at the moment was “Sweetest One”. Enjoy.

Also, there are a few other tunes that were sung by Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge. Here is one of those tunes.

greendougherty.Blog – Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Jazz Music

Featured

7-23-2017 1-16-20 AM

I have a true love for Oldies (Doo Wop) Music and have been calling all the posts Oldies (Doo Wop) Groups because almost all the music is centered around groups from the 1950’s. The majority of the music comes from groups from the 1950’s and some are with the lead singer for that group as they do a single after the group has met success. So, forgive the title, Oldies (Doo Wop) Groups, as that will be the primary title for all these posts.

Also, part of the music collection will feature another type of music or video theme every so often, and the title will stay the same but be included in a sub title. Pretty much like the above selection of Jazz music that I was introduced while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps.

The Jazz music collection is centered around a Jazz period from the 1930’s that caught my attention and it was that of Benny Goodman with Sing Sing Sing at the Jazz Concert at Carnegie Hall in 1938. I still have the original LP album but was able to find the complete 12 minute recording on You Tube. Enjoy.

Sing Sing Sing by Benny Goodman at the 1938 Jazz Concert at Carnegie Hall

While in the U.S. Marines, I came across Timmy who introduced me to Ahmad Jamal and Nancy Wilson. Nancy Wilson, I’ll find out, but for now here is Ahmad Jamal with Poinciana. The other tunes is Moonlight in Vermont.

Poinciana by Ahmad Jamal

Moonlight in Vermont by Ahmad Jamal

Just a quick intro to one of the Jazz great is that of Al Jarreau and with George Benson on one tune that caught my attention with “Breezin”. Once you listen to Al Jarrean you just have to hear more. Enjoy.

Al Jarreau and George Benson

Breezin with Al Jarreau and George Benson

I just have to add Al Jarreau with Dave Brubeck with Take Five.

Take Five with Al Jarreau and Dave Brubeck

As to the rest of the tunes…enjoy. I’ll be adding more as memory comes back to me as to some Jazz greats.

Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Today’s Group – Gypsy Kings

Featured

Gypsy Kings

Introducing the Gypsy Kings

This is an unusual pick that came about when I was researching songs from the past. One tune that I like a lot is that of “Me And Mrs. Jones” by Billy Paul. One has to hear Billy Paul and his rendition of “Me And Mrs. Jones” to understand why I like it….just listen to the song.

“Me And Mrs. Jones” by Billy Paul

While looking at the the You Tube selection for “Me And Mrs. Jones” by Billy Paul, I noticed that there were a few other tunes recorded by other artists of “Me And Mrs. Jones”. One struck me as unusual because it had a picture of Billy Paul with Chico and the Gypsy Kings.I thought that it was strange but was interested in hearing that rendition of ?Me And Mrs. Jones just to see how it sounded.

“Me And Mrs. Jones” by Billy Paul with Chico and the Gypsy Kings

I knew after I heard this rendition that I had to check to see if there were any more great recording artists that did something like this with the Gypsy Kings. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any more U.S. recording artists that recorded with the Gypsy Kings but did find a popular tune called Volare, and it was with Penelope Cruz with the Gypsy Kings. Take a look.

“Volare” by the Gypsy Kings wih Penolope Cruz

That’s my introduction to everyone with the Gypsy Kings. They have a unique style at the end of most of their tunes which I enjoy every time I hear some of their tunes. A few other tunes that they play that come to mind are: Bamboleo, Pena Penita, and Boualem, just tio name a few that I enjoyed. I know that I missed a few while putting this page together and I’ll add them to the Gypsy Kings page when I get a chance.

Enjoy,

greendougherty – Renovating a Section of the Dougherty Garden – April 11, 2017

The following set of pictures detail most of the renovation so that I could remove an overgrown area of a section of the Dougherty Garden.  There were several problems that came about as this renovation came along and most of those steps were covered in pictures. If any of these steps can help you out in an renovation in your garden, I’ve done my job. Enjoy.

I refer to this section as Area I in the Dougherty Garden that presently has Mexican Ruellia growing with a bunch of weeds. This area needs to be fully renovated by removing everything growing.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After I had removed the Mexican Ruellia top portion of the plant, the roots remained which were intertwined with the landscaping material about and inch or so below the soil.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I did a little raking and cleaning of the brick pavers to see what I was up against at this point in the renovation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here a bunch of weeds mixed with mulch stand out and a bit of black landscape material tell me that this is going to be a long job to complete.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

At this point , I started to do some of the brick pavers to see  how it would look.

An overview of what the potential of how it will look when I finish.

Another overview of the area being renovated showing the base of the plants  that is still in the ground.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A few of the tools that I use to cut back the weeds and a sanding stone to keep the blade sharp during this process.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another tool that I use is a common house scissor to make a clean cut between the grass and the brick pavers.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I use the scissor to loosen up the soil to free up any roots that run underneath the brick pavers.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here, I’m cutting the edge of the grass that grows over the brick pavers. To me, this is just exercise even though I have two edgers to do this process. For me, this is exercise and a bit of fun getting out those little weeds and grass.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are a few grass runners growing in between the brick pavers that I’ll remove with the scissors and use the tip of the scissor to go into the soil to loosen up anything else that is growing under the brick pavers.

A look at the brick pavers after I removed the weeds and loosened up the soil.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A view with most of the weeds and Mexican Ruellia plants removed.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This area still has some of the roots still in the ground and attached to the landscape material.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the first piece of landscape cloth that I removed from this area and you can see the roots from the Mexican Ruellia had grown through the landscape material. When this area is fully renovated, landscape cloth will m[never be used again in the Dougherty Garden.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A view of the area with everything removed with the exception of the four paver stones in the middle. I found that a curly tailed lizard was living under the statute in the middle. The black material is landscape material that I tried to remove but had a problem with because of the roots that grew through the landscape material.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After a few hours of cutting the roots that were above the ground, I was able to remove most of the landscape material.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was starting to make progress in Area I and decided to remove all the brick pavers so that I could use a rake to feel for the landscape material and any other roots that were still growing in this area.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After a few years under the roots of the Mexican Ruellia and the inability to get close enough to the statute shelter, I have to do a little maintenance of sanding and painting after I finish with the ground works.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

At this point the paver stones are still in the middle.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another view of the area after I did a bit of raking to continuously try to free up any roots still in the ground. When the landscape material was removed, I was able to use my shovel to free up clumps of soil and use the rake to loosen up any roots still in the soil.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Since I finally thought that I had removed most, if not all, of the roots in the soil, I decided that it was time to return the brick pavers to the area that they were formally located.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In order to sit the brick pavers, I use soil that I reclaimed when I sifted the mulch as a base and smooth the soil out with my hand.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the reclaimed soil from sift the mulch through a strainer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I use my hand to smooth out the reclaimed soil.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Landscaping the brick pavers is easier with this reclaimed soil.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Getting closer to the finish line on renovating this area in the Dougherty Garden.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I left the white tube out when I located the watering system for the one sprinkler that was sitting in the circle. Hopefully, I did’n’t make any cuts in the plastic pipes for the sprinkler system.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And the finished area finally completed which I’ll let sit for a time to make sure that nothing grows out of the soil other than a weed here and there. Every day, I use the area to drop some sifted soil to help fill in the area.

greendougherty – Palms No. 31 thru 40 of the Dougherty Garden – April 1, 2017

A quick reference for identifying all the palms that are growing and have grown in the Dougherty Garden at one time. Occasionally, you’ll find one, two or three palms with the same number but that’s strictly to maintain the pictures that I had at the moment in my file system.

The palm pictures that I will use will be a picture of the most mature palm tree that I have of that palm tree and the name of the palm tree will be the Common name of that palm. More details of the palm tree will be added over time.
