Catching Up

August 8th, 2016

Last week I was in Vermont with a friend. We rented a little cottage on Lake Champlain and had a wonderful week relaxing and seeing a loads of interesting things (stay tuned this week for photos). I had plans to post photos of things we were seeing, but out internet connection was lacking.
Now that I’m home, I’m madly catching up on all the work, both in the office and in the garden. This weekend was spent watering, harvesting, weeding, and enjoying all the new blooms.

Do you have any trips planned this summer?

    Just got back from three wonderful days hiking in the White Mountains in New Hampshire. And, I’m planning a trip to Iceland in September. Closer to home, I hope to go to the Boothbay Botanic Gardens soon, perhaps this coming weekend.

    During the few days in NH my zucchini grew to monstrous sizes – they’ll be good to make zucchini bread but not much else!

    I am so glad you had a fun trip this summer! It is hard to plan around garden harvesting for sure :)

    Susy, nope no trips for a while. Too many domestic responsibilities to get away for more than a couple days at a time.It doesn’t look like that will change any time soon. I do know that things can change quickly and nothing is forever. Maybe next year. I’m always interested in hearing about your amazing trips.

    Have a great day and welcome back to social media.
