Summer in New England is short, but oh so sweet. Nectar to the souls who suffered through the long, tough winter. This year, the sunflowers have migrated over slightly in the front yard, over a bit from the front window this year, but are suddenly in profuse bloom. Now they're feeding the bees, and in a couple of months' time their seeds will feed the goldfinches.
In the city, the kids play in the Frog Pond fountain, and we enjoy free concerts on the Common and brunch over on the waterfront with a view to the harbor.
Work has been a bit crazy, with some long hours, including a few this weekend. I've also had to spend some time in physical therapy for hip bursitis, not helped by long hours at my desk. But hopefully things have calmed some and I can enjoy some rest and more of the summer sunshine. D and I have vacation away coming up in a couple of weeks. And tomorrow I have a day off to go visit a friend who has a fabulous in-ground pool. I'm looking forward to it, both time with friends and the nice summer dip.
