The summer wind came blowing in. Astilbes were about ready to peak. Baby tomatos appeared on the brandywine heirloom.

We are outahere for five weekends...Hopefully this is the last year we need to rent. The offering plan for our loft was finally approved and the end is in sight.

The bay at 6:45. The storm passed thru in about 5 minutes with a little rain and some thunder.
