"The first hot days of summer came early this year, a month before real summer, not as a tease but as a promise.

The long weekend last week felt like summer vacation — we went swimming in the lake, worked for hours in the gardens, took long walks and short bike rides, sat outside at night by the fire pot and forgot what day it was.

It wasn’t really summer vacation. The water was cold and so were the evenings, and we had to go back to work or school too soon.

But then we had summer-style thunderstorms, with hail and wind that blew the tent around the front yard and tossed the plant shelf when its plastic covering became a sail. No damage done, just the excitement of pulling instantly flooded tomato plants out of what had become a bag of water. And the feel of a summer evening."
