It’s Summer, I mean. Officially. I got my first fly bite today.
Hey, thanks for hanging in, Friends! I know it’s been a week. As I had mentioned, a super-busy one. Sitting in the piano/conductor chair for The Sound of Music has been a great joy! Super fun to be playing with such fine musicians, and for a lovely cast. One more weekend, over there in Lake Placid. If you come see the show, don’t be afraid to come down to the pit afterwards – I love visitors!
And, in big news, I am the new organist/pianist at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Saranac Lake! Awesome! Very, very historic church, lovely grounds, super nice people, awesome pipe organ. I’m thrilled. This trial go ’round is for six weeks, and then we talk about whether I seem to be a good fit. Suffice it to say, I’m going to be doing a lot of practicing!
Around here? You guessed it. Gardening. Exhausting, sweaty, buggy, wonderful gardening. I considered writing a four-thousand word blog post about it, but seeing as a picture paints a thousand words and all that bunk, here’s a few snaps from just a few minutes ago.
One of this year’s new beds – the annual & herb garden. I decided it would be neat to just mix everything up together. A little weird that I planted all the herbs willy nilly with pansies in-between them? I think it’s awesome!
This big spot alongside the road is going to be the sunflower garden – giants in the back and shorter ones in the front. I’ve always wanted a sort of sunflower forest, so I thought this would be fun. That was a lot of tilling! The soil out there was rock hard!
Last year’s perennials coming up nicely!
And, the standard photo. I figured that since I’ve used this angle out the window facing the cabin a few times, it would be nice to see what I see out the window as the seasons pass.
You have a great day too!
