July is by far my favorite month of the year–even today when the humidity and temperature are both high. Here in Maine it’s the month when all the tantalizing promises of spring reach fruition. My window boxes are overflowing with flowers, and the hard work — except for keeping after the abundant crop of weeds — is done in the gardens. Time to stretch out in the hammock, watch eagles soaring overhead, keep an eye out for lobstermen coming home with the day’s catch, and just enjoy life on a Maine island.
The last couple of weeks have been very busy with writing deadlines and lots of company (when you live on a Maine island you are very popular at this time of year), but stay tuned for more regular blog posts. And above all, enjoy your own July. Like many of the good things in life, it’s fleeting!
