We’ve had the most gorgeous weather of the summer this past week! I saw this beautiful field of goldenrod along Essex Road, just east of US 31. Had to rush straight home, unload two bales of straw, two 40-lb. bags of peat, a winterberry shrub and heave my painting gear into the truck and head back over there. Fortunately, the road shoulder was wide enough for me to park and stand next to the truck. There’s nothing quite as comforting as having a big, old truck in between you and the traffic whizzing by at 55+ mph!
