We had a little visitor one morning. We did not see mom. The first bear we have seen in a couple of years. He was headed next door to the berry patch, glad I got there first.
On my daily walk I saw a very tiny orange newt.
Followed by this, yikes!!! I sense a theme
July was very cold and rainy and so far August seems to be just beautiful! Not the warm air of August but the cool dry air of fall.
For my birthday we went to King Arthur Flour in Vermont for lunch and a little shopping.
and on the way home we found this garden.
It is a Japanese garden tucked in truly the middle of now where, off a dirt road in a very very small town.
While I know nothing of the symbolism of the gardens I know they are just beautiful and I appreciate the work.
And time that goes into it.
Some of these trees have to be very old.
Lots of care and pruning.
The Granite in this garden was old and thick.
Just peaceful and lovely and wonderful find.
Today is my birthday I am officially older than dirt! We had a quick dinner out and then went to the concert on the common. Well it was the Beatles!! So fun and reminded us of younger days.
I hate to discuss Covid yet again but the numbers around here are going up. No where near what the rest of the country is but still up.
I hear whispers of canceling rug hooking gatherings uggg.
I have an immune compromised husband so we have to be careful but because other people can not be careful my life has to stop too. Very frustrating and now I am off my soapbox.
I will end with a free pattern by Linsay Bowles.
