Patches of paradise: tiny gardens are big in Gloucester

The little summer gardens of Gloucester grow and grow. Gardener poets show us not only “who loves the flowers, but whom the flowers love,” an axiom my grandmother was fond of.

In praise of deft spade and artful tending, virtual blue ribbons for making a garden of their world and a crowd of joyous color all around us. [Centennial, Prospect, Tolman, Hovey, Rocky Neck, Bass Ave and Rockport Rd.] photos: C. Ryan August 2021

Margarita Monday at Topside Grill

During the summer, we like to celebrate Margarita Monday at different establishments around town. The idea is to try new margarita recipes in local places. Last week we went to the Topside Grill on Rogers Street for a late lunch. It was Monday, so………Margarita Monday with the Topside traditional margarita. I had the meatball app and GMG Jim tried the bacon wrapped scallops. Relaxing and delicious. Perfect for a Monday afternoon. Cheers!
