Weekend Things

Bare hill pond summer 2012

There is just one more half day left of the school year (who ends school on a Monday with a half day?  Harvard, MA, that’s who….there is no logic) but last night I got the first taste of summer sweetness.   It came while sitting in a friend’s garden (who happens to live on our town pond)  while our children played on a surf board in the water.  The delicious glass of wine, the joy of the moment and the beauty of the place makes me a little teary to think about.   I want so desperately to enjoy and appreciate every moment of these moments that I have right now.   My little people are still interested in doing stuff with me and I want to introduce them to everything I am passionate about.   So with only that as explanation, I want to tell you that I am not going to be here for the month of July.   Taking the time I have with them having fantastic adventures is too important.

I’m going to invite some guests (if you have an interesting idea for a guest post, email me) and I am going to schedule some things in advance so it isn’t all crickets here.   So we have a couple weeks together until august….I hope you enjoy your weekend and these weekend things.

My dear friend sent me a Summer Bucket list for my b-day (which was Monday BTW) — It will be a challenge (but fun) to achieve but I have added a few additional things….here are a few:

  1. Figure out how to make something cool with Macrame
  2. Get a tan tattoo (but not this dramatic)
  3. Read  5 new books — any recommendations?
  4. Finish at least 3 house projects (Deck, Barn Painting, and something else…)

Want a couple more links?

See you Monday!

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    What a nice article: Here are some other thoughts for that summer bucket list:
    Notice the trees and the flowers as they grow and change
    Go skinny dipping
    Cook from ingredients obtained at a farmers market
    Visit the local public gardens
    ..and of course have an outdoor picnic!
