A Lazy Sunday in the County

On a lazy Sunday afternoon in August, our sunflowers are at the height of their glory.

We’re into the last month of summer now.  Veraison — the ripening event where the grapes transform from green to purple and gold — is well under way.  Sunflowers are in full bloom beside the winery and a gentle breeze rustles in the poplars.  Bees buzz through our pumpkins’ just-blooming flowers, alongside pumpkins that are like green basketballs.

My enterprising girls Ellie and Anika set up a table beside the pathway into the winery, offering ice water made with refreshing mint from the garden.

A great day to be in the country and a lazy summer Sunday to be thankful for.
