Everywhere we go these warm and humid July days, the air is filled with the scent of Privet.
Yesterday, I spent a nice day with neighbor, Peg, and it is her favorite scent, too. After cruising a few of our favorite thrift and consignment shops, we took a drive over to Marion, on what is called the Massachusetts South Coast. It is a classically beautiful New England coastal town, and there seemed to be Privet hedges at every house we passed. After a nice tour through the area....known well by Peg, as her daughter is renting a home there on the water for the summer, we came back to Wareham and had a little waterfront lunch to catch up on our lives, laughing and commiserating - there is nothing like a good friend.
Teddy is off to camp for the day, and I am about to go to the gym, followed by a grocery trip. I've promised myself I will come home and read this afternoon. Have a good book going with some interesting New England history, "The House at Lobster Cove," by Jane Goodrich.
I will leave you with a beautiful Cape Cod sunset captured by my love, LM, on 4th of July, evening in Yarmouthport on Mill Creek.
Peace, smiles and love!
