The weather has been glorious here. One day has been sunnier than the next, with temperatures between 85 and 90 degrees. It is quite a pleasant surprise after last summer, when it rained almost every day during our stay.
The sunflowers are in full bloom, the farmers are cutting the grass for hay, and the clear night sky is filled with stars.
Slowly and surely, I have been putting order in the garden at the house. I have pulled barrels upon barrels of weeds. To my pleasant surprise, many of the plants have survived the winter and the flower beds are starting to look lovely. I'll post photos as soon as I am done.
The days here have been filled with visits to friends and chats with neighbors, catching up on village news, and planning this summer's home improvements.
Life in New York is busy, but the days are just as filled here.
