Garden time

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).

New House in Wiscasset

I had posted before about a house that disappeared (well, got torn down) - I suspected someone either wanted their view improved, or a new house. It looks like they may now have both.

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

Danvers Meeting of HSEAD

We are now back from the annual meeting of the Historical Society of Early American Decoration ( 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.
