Extraordinary weather here in Wellfleet, folks. Blue skies. High puffy clouds. A slight breeze. Perfect weather for planting a summer garden. Not too hot, not too cold. Sven is outside reworking the brick pathway so that guests will no longer get their feet wet when it rains. After forty-some odd years, the bricks had sunken into the earth. It was time to pull them out and start over, giving me a perfect excuse to create a partial shade garden outside the new green room. The lilacs are in blossom now, too. Over at the cottage, a hanging basket of bright pink flowers awaits guests, as does the wisteria, dramatic in the way it swoops down from the roof. Yesterday I saw my first hummingbird of the year from the cottage windows, in search of nectar. The wisteria seemed inviting. Hummingbirds always make me catch my breath, so amazing are they to see hovering in air. Sven had a guest from Sweden yesterday. Today a Russian chat group recommended Chez Sven, so our Web site had numerous visitors with Russian connections. Memorial Day is early this year. We still have availability for Liberty Coin Suite. And, the weatherman is predicting sunshine ...
