Not my photo, but I got to light the candles.
My son planted this little plot of corn and tomatoes this spring. I can't say I've heard the corn grow, but its daily progress is great fun to watch. Ah life's simple pleasures. Which brings to mind the words and music of George Gershwin...
Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish and jumpin'
And the cotton is high
You're daddy's rich
And you ma is good lookin'
So hush little baby, don't you cry
Picnicked with some of the extended fam up in Millcreek Canyon last night. My son organized this little celebration of nature and kept the menu simple but authentic: hotdogs, chips, watermelon and smores, oh and the best drink on the planet, ice water. Thanks for a great Saturday night meal and get-together, Joe!
