A Memorial Day Evening Ride Around the Farm

This week, temperatures are expected to hit the high 80s here in the New York City area, but so far, forecasts don’t call for any significant rainfall.

Yesterday evening, after I returned home from a weekend in Maine, I decided to take a drive around the farm to see how all the flowers, trees and plants were doing. The dry conditions have been hard on the gardens - we’ve been using sprinklers wherever possible, but there’s nothing like a good soaking rain.

During the drive, I took these photos of the growth I observed. Despite the weather, everything is growing beautifully - enjoy them.
