Thoughts To Share

I would like to thank our farmers here in the valley and throughout Transylvania. It seems to be floods or drought. Please know that your commitment to your land and growing vegetables to nourish our bodies is much appreciated. May your summer harvest be abundant and prosperous. Nice start to the summer months, eh? Our windows are open again followed by the heat on Memorial weekend. So, delighted to be greeted each morning, around 5:45 a.m., by the birds’ morning songs, once again. I am not a fan of AC but grateful for, and appreciate it, in the dogs days of summer. The last week has been like the old-fashioned summers in WNC. Hope it stays around for a while.
