Our modem fried itself yesterday
so we were without internet access
and it was strangely freeing to know
that I need not worry about email,
posting, blogging, anything.
Although I did miss checking in with
all my favorite blogger pals around
Comcast showed up at 4:30 today
and I was busy, busy in the office,
hence the fried mind…,
so I am offering up a photo tour of the
pond side of our house with it’s brilliant
blue hydrangea in bloom, before it
I plan to dive in
with one of those noodles
you see at the bottom of the
photo and chill(maybe) in the tepid
water (it must be 80F). And if
you look closely at the photo,
you will see the ancient one
peeking through the bamboo
This hydrangea has so many blooms and the a
Annabelle next to it has those huge white, billowy
heads, but not so many this year. A jungle of ferns,
climbing Boston Ivy and climbing hydrangea round
out the chaotic mass.
This is the mosaic fish
I made a couple of years
ago that David graciously hung
on the house (it must weight 50-60
pounds or more). It is big enough
that we had to screw it directly
into the house. It was a inspired by some tile we put into our kitchen
backsplash and the painted areas
really make the grout sing.
The busy Boston’s are keeping
everyone on their toes and they are
having a blast burying toys all over the yard.
I am hoping for a little reduction in this
humidity over the weekend, and a great
brunch with our pals Monica and Tim.
She is a marvelous, from scratch cook
and they live in an apartment with
a balcony hanging over the Charles
River in Cambridge so we can watch
the sailors while we dine.
Another glorious summer weekend
