Earlier this morning it was cloudy, even a bit misty. I walked into Coupeville along Penn Cove and was treated to the perfume of wild roses and honeysuckle. My favorite time of year. Everything is so green. I know no one will believe me, but my irises (purple and white) are 4 1/2 feet tall! And I have about 10 large red poppies on the poppy plant at the edge of the driveway. I walked to the library to return a book, and then searched for another book by Susan Wittig Albert. Oh my, it is so great to find a new author who writes charming stories with such imagination and skill. I am in the midst of the Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter series, and just picked up one from her new series called The Darling Dahlias and the Cucumber Tree.
