Morning at the Mactaquac Marina.
Friday was a perfect summer day ~ sunny, gentle breeze and hot!
There are a lot of boats at the marina this year.
One can rent these houseboats for a day or a week and cruise the Mactaquac Headpond
(above the dam) and park anywhere in a cove overnight. They are very popular.
I chose to sit on the back deck in the sun and just dream.
These days are few now.
Pretty soon this sugar maple will be brilliant orange/yellow and
it may be too chilly to sit on the deck.
The hydrangea is blooming nicely now.
Well, since I'm up why don't we take a look at my summer blooms now.
Outhouse daisies and brown-eyed susans
pink phlox, purple coneflower, purple fanflower and pink impatiens
the front steps to the deck, sedum, purple coneflower and striped impatiens.
I see that fall mums are now for sale at some spots. I hope to purchase 2 for the
front deck as they last through our thanksgiving (October 10) if they are protected
from frost at night. I also will get pumpkins when they become available.
I did get to sit on the deck again for a few minutes under the umbrella and
I also sat on the front deck in the shade and read a good book in the afternoon.
I'm glad I took the time to relax on such a lovely day because it's cloudy today.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
What are you doing?
