|Except for the common morning fog we haven’t had any moisture for weeks. But this morning we have a slight drizzle which I hope will bring some moisture to our browning lawn. |
It is quite unusual that the east coast is staying so dry. Bea had to water her garden every day and we can now see some green tomatoes, and beans and peas are getting ready for harvest.
Our “knocking woodpecker” made in Norway
We have been eating our own lettuce for weeks and the first seedlings for the next lettuce are showing leaves after only a few days in our new greenhouse.
Looking at the calendar I can’t believe that we are already nearing the end of summer. It seems so short.
Goldenrod is plentiful this year
We have been attending another concert on Wednesday and this time it was Celtic harp with a fiddle.
The program consisted of Swedish folk from the province of Jämtland, which was especially interesting for us as some melodies were known to us from our time in Norway. Jämtland was once part of Norway but was lost to Sweden in 1645.

When I have nothing else to do I indulge in some “marine-style crafts” like painting a buoy or making this box of driftwood, filled with smooth round rocks.
Thanks for stopping by.
