Memorial Day Weekend is the official start of summer here at the Jersey Shore. The weather stood up and took notice this weekend too, we had some rain this week but today was a beach day for sure. I took some pictures on the 28th and then a few more today of the flowers and vegetables in the gardens around the house. The veggies look a little… well, sparse – but the season is just starting and I know they will fill in soon. I wish I had more sun on them for a longer time during the day – but I’ll get that whopper tree down someday.
