Garden Spot

Even on the hottest days — and the last few have been climbing in that direction — my little shady garden office offers respite, a place to read, write, and reflect...

And nap!


Blackberries Soon

Nearly there!

Maybe as early as tomorrow (and I will probably find at least one or two that are ready this afternoon), and certainly by Tuesday . . . Blackberries!

Just in time for the Fourth!

And judging by how productive the plants are this year, plenty of berries for the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh, too.
