The warm, rainy weather has made it a jungle out there. Some things, such as the rhododendron out back are magnificent, and the foxglove at the edge of the weed-filled garden look good. But there is a corner of the driveway where the weeds have gone wild - can you see the five-foot balsam hiding in there?

It seems that the peonies here are in beautiful bloom for a short time, and always when either we are away, or we have downpours that flatten them. This year was able to pick some (although I can never remember what time of day to do this in order to avoid bringing in the ants that live on them).

On our first visit back to Wiscasset this season, a new house is almost complete, and is a nice fit into the streetscape.

We are now back from the annual meeting of the Historical Society of Early American Decoration (www.hsead.org) in Danvers, MA. While there, our newsletter editor, Diane Tanerillo, took this photo of me with her iPhone - not bad, if I do say so myself.
