Summer Saturday in New England
I don't know about you, but in the Connecticut we have had the rainiest spring and summer that I can remember. I just read yesterday that we have El Nino to thank for this lovely wet season. However, I dug through my photos and thought I would share these. Fortunately, I love a cool summer and low humidity which we have had. So I'm not complaining believe me. Besides, what better weather is there for a bookworm? I'm happy to be eating through pages and pages of dinner.
The above photos were taken last winter when schools were closed after a Nor'easter pummeled the Northwest Hills. I love the still solitude of the lake in these shots. However, like a capricious New Englander, looking at them now I am happy for the rain that nurtures nature's summer bouquet among the green. Below are photos of a collective potted garden I call my eventual patio salad. I already have had tons of green beans. Yum! Early green tomatoes show great promise. I hope you are enjoying your summer. What has your weather been like. I'd love to see a photo or two. Have a happy Saturday.
