A big part of Summer for me is being outside & gardening. When I realized my Summer was going to be compromised, I made some changes in order to continue to enjoy the happenings of this season.
Pots of color and the views out the windows were even more important.
I was surprized that lots of perennials in the yard could come inside...had never tried that with lilies. They have lasted very well.
Lew has been very helpful in culling the yard for some lovelies and I am trying to but the blinders on or close my eyes to what I can't change or keep up. It does make me think about next summer and gives me time to read the box holders and Observers to see what will tempt me these next weeks.
So there are some pretty neat things to rest my eyes on both here and out and about. Feels good. Gives me time to rest, putter with some flowers and consider a couple of the many things coming up. I have to admit there are a couple of fun things coming soon that were a surprise to me!
There are many more musical events this week including under the Big Top on Thursday night. For more info, go to www.washingtonislandmusicfestival.com
Planning Ahead...I know this is two weeks out but mentioning Peter Nehlsen reminds me of this special event. Folks might want to plan a trip up with this in mind. Peter returns to the TPAC along with Julian Hagen and some neat surprises.
