I am watching the lawnmower service busy outside. One guy with a weed whacker and another on a huge lawn tractor. The grass was indeed very high, but the ground is so saturated I don't quite understand how that large mower is not sinking and making ruts.
In truth, I would rather be sipping my coffee and watching the rabbits cavorting on the lawn. They are ever so much cuter and quieter.
I went with a friend to see author Howard Norman do a reading from his new book, My Darling Detective, at the bookstore in Montpelier.
The reading was intriguing enough to make me purchase the book on the spot. It is billed on the back cover reviews as "an homage to noir."
I hope every one is enjoying Linda's garden tours. I will show you why I am always in such awe of her photos of Washington state gardens:
Only one iris bud and one peony bud!
Rhododendron put on a good display though.
