IN THE GARDEN


Musical pairing – Fields of Gold by Eva Cassidy

Summer might be my favorite season . . . but then again, I think I say that every time the seasons change . . . and yet there is something magical about summer . . .

52 sundays; may 1, 2011

Today is May 1st and before I say, ‘How in the world did that happen?’ I’m also going to tell you that today is also May Day – the day I used to fantasize about as a child because I had read stories depicting beautifully dressed children dancing around the Maypole and someone, a girl one would presume, would be crowned as ‘Queen of May’ . . . and well . . . I always wanted to be Queen . . . but there was a tiny little problem in that I was also a tomboy and therefore, did not fancy itchy dresses with white petticoats, lacy white ankle socks and black patent-leather shoes . . . and seriously, where on earth would one get a pole that tall with ribbons wrapped barbershop style . . . and how on earth would one place said pole in the ground . . . and please explain to the 8-year-old red-headed girl how that pole would stay upright while children danced around it holding those ribbons???  But I digress . . .

2010 . . . A MID-SUMMER GARDEN PIZZA VIDEO


I’m having one of those ‘Rip Van Winkle’ moments because I just  cannot fathom that I’m actually using the words, ‘mid-summer.’ Then I look at the calendar and remember that the temperatures have been above 90 for the past couple of weeks and our gardens do indeed, remind me that it really is mid-summer – there’s a bounty to be picked and enjoyed!  We’ve put together a ‘mid-summer’ garden tour – so take a minute and walk with us – we’ll show you around!
