The desire to reach for the sky runs deep in our human psyche.
~ Cesar Pelli
M and I had a lovely visit with our oldest son, his lovely wife, and our two granddaughters. The girls are just too cute for words.
The talented Emma performed (ballet) at a charity dinner on Friday night. We took her little sister, Maddy, to the Franklin Park Conservatory on Saturday morning while Emma was at dance practice. We had a grand time looking at flowers, butterflies, and Chihuly glass. After gathering together for a light lunch, the girls went with their mother to see a musical, and M and I made our way home. The day was so nice that we stopped along the way for an hour-long hike somewhere near Amish country.
We didn’t see any Amish, but we did see a few cows here and there.
We’re thinking of going back that way sometime soon to ride the trail on our bikes.
As for today, it is sunny, warm, and simply lovely. I spent an hour or so in the garden, cleaning up the asparagus bed. The asparagus is now coming in quickly enough that we have to harvest some every day. I harvested enough today to share some with a neighbor. M has been taking out the storm windows and replacing them with screens. And I picked up the big rake for the first time this year to start the never-ending process of weeding the pond. It’s good exercise.
That’s about it from the Bogs for today. Thanks so much for your visits and comments. I hope you’ve been having a wonderful weekend, and that Mother Nature has blessed you with some lovely get-outside-and-enjoy-it weather.
