Stormy Weather

Today brought with it more rain to the Boston area. Unfortunately, our windows have remained closed for much of this summer so far. The howling northeasterly wind that accompanies the incoming Atlantic tide brings with it an ocean chill more reminiscent of December than July. Oh well, you can't fight Mother Nature. But what you can do is post more pictures from this past lovely weekend.

salad greens going to seed.

The salad greens began to bolt a few weeks ago and have now gone to seed. I really don't mind so much since the accompanying yellow flowers are so pretty - another reason to let the plant complete it's life cycle (aside from saving seed).

  1. Hi Thomas. Loving your Blog too. What a fantastic view of the sea. Some of my salad greens have got lovely yellow flowers on too, you just have to embrace the change don't you?
    Especially like your header pic of the sunflower.
