All the blessings of summer

Summer is garden time.
Time for dreaming.

It's the season for long walks and long conversations. 

For food that sings of sunshine and loving hands.

Time for friends and family and parties like this one, when we celebrated a traditional Scandinavian midsommar with dancing and laughter on a long, golden summer evening.

Summer is the time we pause to savor the outdoors with abandon
with friends large and small.

I hope you are taking time for creativity of all sorts and enjoying it as I am.

Happy summer, dear friends. How are you celebrating? 

What are you seeing and doing under the blue, blue sky?

Sharyn... what an amazing place to live! What's better than orchard fruit, homemade bread, garden vegetables and wonderful friends in such a beautiful setting!

Hello there! Here is what I am garden garden, before the REAL heat sets in. I gave my garden tour and it was lovely. After all my doubts, the ladies were quite delighted and entranced with Hopalong Hollow. I just might do it again! Jeri
