Yesterday was beautiful after a foggy start. Maybe the same will happen today.
It’s still hard to believe September is here.
The DPW finished the retaining wall, moved boulders, prepped the hill and added loam. Today the Generous Gardeners completed stage one of plantings.
DPW has been building a retaining wall to prevent further erosion of the hill, as well as make the parking lot safer, especially in the winter.
A neighbor gave me a “spoon tomato” plant to grow. They’re really cute and easy eating!
Not so hot, nice walking on the boulevard, and great shady spots for lunch. And two new favorite dahlias.
It’s tomorrow! Please join the annual fundraising effort to beautify Gloucester. Generous Gardeners has been able to continue their work during the pandemic and will appreciate your contributions for the garden spaces all over the city. This year is a virtual tour volunteers’ gardens and all Gloucester spaces cared for by the group. Tickets are a minimum purchase of $5 and there are great donated items in an online game of chance!

We are so lucky to have such nice places to eat lunch outside! I had my North Ender at the Elizabeth Gordon Smith garden with these views.
It’s the first time this beach season I’ve been here during the day. It is beautiful with so few visitors at a time.
Just picked at Marini’s Farm in Ipswich!
