Happy Tumbleweed Tuesday!

[caption id="attachment_10803" align="alignnone" width="600"] After the crowds have gone...[/caption] There are only two real Tuesdays in September, in my estimation. There's the Tuesday after Labor Day, and then there's the Tuesday after that, which will always be filled in my mind with the images of the smoke and dust of the twin towers, the first week of my son's Kindergarten class, the horror on the faces of the people who

[caption id="attachment_7069" align="alignnone" width="600"] Holy Sunrise, Flanders UMC[/caption] The days are eerily lengthening without any leaves on the trees, as forsythia meekly open their yellow buds in a spring that seemed not quite yet just like spring should be. Waiting for spring is sometimes like waiting for the Resurrection. It's just all about faith. This week, perhaps, things will truly change. [easingsliderpro id="45"]

[caption id="attachment_6665" align="alignnone" width="600"] Spring at the Peconic River Herb Farm[/caption] There's something to these weeks of waiting for spring. They test your faith in the process of renewal. The peas planted on St. Patrick's Day shrivel with the plummeting temperatures, or get washed out by heavy rains. The afternoon light is a dim, pale yellow, a shadow of the robust hue of August. At our windowsills, we wait, anxious,

[caption id="attachment_6416" align="alignnone" width="600"] Open the Season, Montauk[/caption] Open your eyes and open up a fresh season. We pealed off winter (at least for the moment) this week, for just a few days' glance at the beauty in store for us as the mercury rises. Take the time, if you can, to enjoy the forks before they're too crowded to see the beauty we have around us all year round.

Anxious farmers are beginning to plow and warm their soil with row covers, while nurseries have cleared their winter stock and are waiting, just waiting, until its safe to unleash their plants on

[caption id="attachment_5866" align="alignnone" width="600"] Last year's Brussels Sprouts still have a lot to say.[/caption] Sail away on the schooner Deliverance. Be attacked by giant Brussels Sprouts. Wonder which scarecrows in the community garden are drinking malt liquor. Watch the snowdrops come up through the snow. Then, Sunday afternoon, watch the snow cover them over again. There's nothing like early March to make you bite your nails and wish for a

This week was a week of waiting, watching and hoping for a future divorced from the polar vortex. But sometimes it's difficult to appreciate a beautiful season when you're stuck in the middle of it.   [easingsliderpro id="39"]

If you see the carousel, you can see the sundial in the concrete on the sidewalk where people walk. If you walk down the sidewalk, you will find your feet. And if you keep on walking, you never know who you might meet. Go out and explore your world. You

Depot Lane, Cutchogue[/caption] In the midst of the repetitive freezing and thawing that mark the month of January, boulders and birds seem to feel the fickle chill and the sudden warmth as much as humans do, counting the numbing  days until spring is at our door. Happy Groundhog Day. We'll do this again tomorrow. [easingsliderpro id="35"]
