The weather has been hot and dry. Our Texas grandsons Anthony and Drew were glad to take a dip in Rowe Pond near-by this past week. They are excellent swimmers after several years on their local swim teams. We left the Pond when we heard thunder, but we never did get the longed for rain.
When Kate returned to Heath after tending to other family responsibilities in the eastern part of the state she did a little touring with the boys. We made sure they signed the guest book at the Bridge of Flowers. They all loved those fabulous Crocosmia.
We had a good visit with this branch of the family, but Dad was waiting impatiently back in Texas. Before they left yesterday the boys did a good job of stacking winter firewood. Maybe we’ll get some more help from visitors to the Heath Fair. Only two more weeks.
You can see the other big project that we have been working on over the past few weeks – getting my book The Roses at the End of the Road ready for publication. We sent the electronic files off to lulu.com and now we wait for a proof. Do you think we will have copies for sale at the Heath Fair? We hope so!
