Summertime 2011

Yes, this summer has flown by. Here are just a few highlights - more to follow soon!

"The last of Summer is Delight --
Deterred by Retrospect.
'Tis Ecstasy's revealed Review --
Enchantment's Syndicate.

To meet it -- nameless as it is --
Without celestial Mail --
Audacious as without a Knock
To walk within the Veil."

-   Emily Dickinson, The Last of Summer is Delight

 End of the Polliwog adventure as I set the last frog free. 

 First sunflower that blooms is a re-seeded one!

 At the Saratoga Racetrack with William and Harry. I kid you not - how royal is that?

 And They're Off! Don was the big winner with Cascadilla Falls. Named after a waterfalls in Ithaca, it was a sure bet!

  Harry and Don.

  A lovely day in Congress Park in downtown Saratoga Springs with the Illis clan, Bob, and Bruce and Harriett.
  My garden.
 A cicada shell on a tree in the garden - they are LOUD this year!

Hi Loretta! Yes, there is certainly a bit of summer left...and I'm hoping for that perfect Indian summer day to take a September swim in Lake George!
