My 4th Of July Weekend in East Hampton

I spent this 4th of July weekend at my home in East Hampton with my daughter Alexis and grandchildren, Jude and Truman. It was an absolutely gorgeous weekend with the exception of Friday, where we experienced the passing of severe and frightening rainstorms - a product of hurricane Arthur. The weekend was a very busy one! The kids spent lots of time at the beach and the pool. We also went into the very busy town of East Hampton a few times. I was invited to a few dinners and lunches and I spent some time getting the house ready after redoing the entire landscape with the help of Ralph Robbins from Save-A-Tree and several other wonderful suppliers of plant materials. I reflected on my decision to move all the roses to my Bedford farm - I’m glad I did it, but I miss the very beautiful and fragrant smell. I had a wonderful time with my daughter and grandchildren and look forward to many more family events in East Hampton. Have a look at some of the photos I took below and share what your 4th of July was like in the comments section. I look forward to reading them.
