Mike and I walked the beach path today to see where there’s some trimming needed and how it looks in general. We came across a few things that needed a “hair cut” and also a bunch of tent worms, ewww.
The tent worms have hatched. I used to go around and break the bags they grow in, hoping that the birds would eat the worms.
“Not so” – said a farmer a while ago. “The nests need to be burned”.
OK. Marc went out after dinner with a blow torch to do just that. He had fun.
On the way we saw a Trillium. That is sort of unusual for this area. They grow in the woods all around us but not in our fields. Then we met Pat G. one of our neighbors.

Now just a few pictures of the beautiful apple blossoms
Hmmmm they smell so good 🙂
So you know that the frame for the kitchen garden has been built. Now it has been moved to the correct place. On Monday a company will come and dump 3 yards of topsoil so we can fill it and then some. And then I need to fill the box with good stuff. I thought I’d send out invitations to the people who “egged me on” about having a garden in the first place. It’s becoming increasingly obvious that I need help – in more than one way, heehee.
Here is what I came up with:
Cocktails at the Wayfarer!
Saturday June 6th, 2009.
Bring a hunk of cheese and
a plant for the bed.
I’ll provide the booze and dirt
These invitations are going out tomorrow 😉
The weekend started off beautifully with lots of sunshine, yay!
Suddenly around lunch time the sky grew darker and darker and the sounds of THUNDER began to get louder and louder, then some sparks and drops of rain. Marc abandoned the lawn mower for safer grounds – namely in the house, the man cave to be exact, and in front of the xbox 360. After about 20 minutes the whole thing was done. The sun came out – a good thing because of at least one outdoor wedding that had to go on late this afternoon. We had a number of wedding guests staying with us, some from N.Y. some from down state. It was a very good weekend here at the Wayfarer. Good night all 🙂
