Day Five is Day Zero for LICH

On Day Five of the snow storm, all New York homeowners have long ago managed to clear their sidewalks. We are a considerate bunch. We wouldn't want grandma to fall and break her neck because of any fault of ours. None of us would. None ? Well, there is always LICH, at its building of 387 Hicks, which is, as LICH bigwigs like to boast, exceptional.

Where the roses bloom

Who can be angry at a hospital where the roses bloom like this ?

Anyway, the street in front is much cleaner too:

I hope the LICH Operating Room is cleaner than this !

Here is the law:

"Property owners must keep their sidewalks clean and are also responsible for snow removal."

And here are the facts (pictures taken outside LICH buildings on Hicks Street near Amity, 9/3/10):

The Wallflower of Long Island College

As I have had numerous occasions to remark, LICH does a nice job of landscaping. In particular I like the two separated individual rose bushes on Hicks Street. The picture here is of the one to the south, close to the corner of Amity Street. It is a beautiful bush, here shown as of today, out of its prime blooming season, but there is still one bloom on top (and, I believe, another one toward the bottom).

Rita and I enjoy these roses each time we pass by. But here is a question: why are these roses so lonely ? By adding another few bushes, it would seem, the result could be truly fantastic. Does it really take that much more effort to care for, say, five bushes than for one ?
