Happy Summer!

Although the calendar doesn’t mark the beginning of summer until June 21st, Memorial Day always announces the unofficial start of summer. While it may be too cold for a dip in the ocean, there is the anticipation of lazy days spent baking in the sun, boating on the waves and shopping in quaint little villages. Happy Summer!

    Where is that town with the window boxes? I can imagine spending a week there as down time from hectic (but wonderful) city life. I love sailing in the Cheaspeake Bay off of Anapolis….what a dreamy summer inspired by your photos. Have a great one!!

    Is that last picture the town of Nantucket, because it sure looks like it?
    When you wrote at the bottom “HC needs a vacation”, I laughed because those are my initials too and I was thinking about an hour ago, when I was reviewing my paystub and it says, as of Friday, I am ONE HOUR SHORT OF NOW HAVING 6 WEEKS VACATION, that maybe it’s time to cash some of that it because, I, too, surely need a vacation! 🙂

    HC –

    With yesterday being blustery, cool and rainy here in Chicago…my flowers are still awaiting the heat of the season.

    for growing reasons
