Summer's End

James Haslam, Director of Rights & Democracy, Senator Bernie Sanders, Heather and Scott at Bernie's Birthday Bash September 10th  on a cruise around Lake Champlain.
Scott and I hike almost every day. This was taken on the AT/LT north of Killington.
It's always bitter sweet when we enter September. Touches of red, yellow and orange tinge the trees and it's too cold to sit outside and eat our breakfast. Fall is starting and we barely had summer. It was cooler and wetter than usual here in Vermont. But we had a lot of fun as usual with lots of guests. Here's a photo album of some of the highlights:
Scott, his cousin Lisa and her boyfriend Yosi, neice Wandi, sister-in-law
Wilma, brother Brent and Heather
All dressed up to attend Opera North's Madam Butterfly.
Brent, Wilma and Wandi came for a week in early August.
Scott won a painting by Persi Narvaez at the
Art in the Park, Rutland
My sister Paula took Amtrak to Boston this year at the
beginning and end of her two weeks with us. Here our first
night dinner at a Cape Verdean restaurant in Dorchester.
Restaurante Cesaria, Sean & Will
Scott, Paula, Sean & Will at Boston Harbor's Harborwalk
Terrace for dinner and a concert by Soul City.
Blues Band Soul City played one hit after another.
My sister Paula Mathai and myself
We picked so many blueberries that we made jam for the
first time.
My containers did really well this year.
The new border around the west end of the pond
I LOVE hollyhocks and just wish I could grow more of them.
There is a close up below of the huge blue heron that has made our pond his home. AND eaten all our trout! He definitely
considers himself King and is not easily driven away.
