Can't say being constrained at home most days for many weeks is bothering me a lot.
I love being at home.
However, I now find myself thinking more about what to plan for travel once we
can actually pack up and go somewhere a little further than Costco!
The cars sit in the driveway with full tanks and nowhere to roam.
The suitcases collect dust in the attic.
Here, inland, we are being blessed with gentle rain this morning as
Tropical Storm Arthur, now just 50 miles off the North Carolina coast,
is passing the Outer Banks with winds reaching 73 mph.
Many hurricanes are forecast for this year's season, we wait and hope
they aren't devastating.
People have enough to contend with already!
The garden needs a good deep water following the hot weekend,
and rain is so much better than dragging the hoses around.
This week will see plenty of rain thanks to Arthur!
Speaking of gardens, how about this neighborhood gem.
When we walked Saturday we loved finding this U PICK - Everyone Welcome
sign on a curbside raised bed. The gnome was cute keeping watch.
Beans, tomatoes, peppers, squash etc. are coming along for picking soon,
meanwhile I snipped a little bunch of curly parsley and pineapple sage.
Pretty Serena & Lily summertime seaside offerings.
Hopefully we will get to a coastal location sometime this summer.
Have you made any travel plans yet?
My visit to the beautiful Cape Verde Islands last year - where most of the US east coast
hurricanes come from!
