Lying on the ground looking up at one of the last bearded Irises to bloom, a yellow-gold version. The clouds really added a completely different tone and timbre to my flowers that day. Day lily buds to the right. They'll be busting open one of these days. Wires courtesy Comcast, lol.
A newly-blooming rose bush in the center of town. These little sidewalk gardens in front of Café Allegre are beautifully planted each year.
Fleeting Beauty—A fresh Hibiscus on the left supercedes the fading older bloom on the right. This is ground level in the same sidewalk gardens as the roses above.

Nancy uses this wooden cheese press, made by her über-talented husband, Bill. I have no idea how it works, what goes where, but I'm fascinated by it!
Regular readers of this blog will remember Nancy Evans Wolff, my childhood friend. She writes a blog for Prudent Living and is a lifelong gardener and amazing cook. Nancy was just featured in the New England Cheesemaking blog. She makes her own cheeses and this piece is on the making of Colby. I really never thought about making cheese before! Check it out, here.
