August in New EnglandAugust 11, 2014
All the gardens are thriving. The cottage perennials, the hosta and other shade plants, and our veggies are all doing well. We still have a lot of flowers to cut and fresh vegetables for the table.
Yesterday we took a break from gardening and headed north to visit our good friends up in Alexandria, NH. We were lucky to be invited to lunch. And, when they say come for lunch, they really mean it. We enjoyed salad from their garden, and fresh lobster, fried bay scallops and fresh sweet corn picked that morning at their family farm. To say it was delicious doesn’t quite do it justice. And, mid afternoon we had chocolate zucchini cake with vanilla frosting. What a food fest. :-)
But, on the way out-of-town we had to stop and stare at some leaves that were turning. Say it isn’t so! I’m really not ready for leaves to start turning. I’m still enjoying the sun and heat of summer.
Here’s hoping we get a late fall so we can enjoy lots of more fresh veggies and color in the garden. :-) Have a terrific week.
