That's a little from our wedding out in Montauk. I'm at the farm for a few days. Decompressing a bit and doing a lot of gardening. Trying to catch up on computer-ing. Our contractor Ivan was here today fixing some plumbing. Have I talked about Ivan before? I don't remember. Ivan has a work ethic that inspires. He says things to me like "Sarah, you can do it." but with an upstate accent and very slowly. I would marry Ivan except he is a great-grandfather, and I'm in a committed relationship. So instead I just look forward to his visits and try to glean as much farming and practical upstate knowledge from him while he's around. He and his son were here and because I can't be idling around in their presence, I pretended to be typing on the computer while making a few unnecessary phone calls to make myself look busy and important.

All I want to do is loaf around and eat keebler's.

Yesterday I got a bee in my hair and it stung my scalp, Eric sustained three stings on his face, but at least we know he's not allergic. Now we've gotten two hives installed. He calls them his "girls." I said, now you have four queens to deal with!

I'm alone here now. It's cloudy and windy outside. Dramatic.

The professor is coming up. I should put a bottle in the fridge. I haven't seen Nicolette in a minute. Kitchen garden is coming on strong, I'll harvest some radishes for supper, garlic scapes to go on a pizza, try to impress her.

More pictures of that wedding, please, I need to scrutinize the details. Are those grey chivaris? Don't think we have those around here. And I love the yarrow in that arrangement! I have a peachy-yellow variety in my garden called 'terra cotta' and it's one of my favorite plants.

Having a gardening biz and being allergic to bees/wasps/damn yellow jackets makes every day feel like I'm living on the edge--but I refuse to run away from those buzzers! (Well, actually, I do run away, but only because I don't have time for a trip to the ER.) Wedding photos are spectacular--but I can't wait to see more of your gardens!

I love the strawberries in your arrangement.
Have to say, that despite all of your obvious talents from reading your blog,ie. florist, writer, etc, maybe you should add therapist. I've been suffering from depression lately and happened upon your blog via Floret, so I spent the whole day reading your whole blog archive. I haven't laughed that hard for MONTHS! Thanks for your inspirtional and honest writing and of course your dreamy flowers. You helped me.
Are you really not older than 15 years old?? So young with an old soul,
You are an inspiration!!
Good luck with the farm
Wendy
