We are mostly done with the clean-up from last evening's backyard party that brought together some of the finest friends and family that anyone could ever hope for -- kind, interesting, smart, and witty folks -- and I'm basking in the afterglow of their good company.
In the garden, the wild violets that the Smeenks planted are fully in bloom (the original owners of the house--we are the third owners-- I shall write about them more on another day).

With the ground saturated, it is time for a brief pause from gardening chores to catch up with indoor tasks and reading and such.
I hope, gentle reader, that the sky is as blue where you are as it is here.
p.s. I am rejoicing in the news that Macron was elected. Viva la France!
