The Weather Fates Were Kind Today

For what seemed like the first time all summer it was a perfect summer day -- clear blue sky, balmy weather and lots of sun. I had been invited to an outdoor luncheon in Bridgehampton, not quite all the way out to the end of Long Island. It's a perfect summer afternoon when the weather is clear, sunny and balmy and the weather fates were in perfect alignment today.

Most of the now very fashionable Hamptons beach area was once farm land. Not much farming remains, but here is a great farm house down the road from my friends' house. 

My friends' gardens 

Grateful for sunshine -- and not too much -- friends, good food and laughter. I'm grateful, too, for all of your good wishes, support and great stories about my last post. Knew I could count on my blog buddies and of course, you were all terrific.   

I'm grateful, too, to Nancy at Southern Blessings. I'm the winner of her blog giveaway for a Total Pillow. It sounds great and I am so excited. Nancy has a great blog, with lots to think about and enjoy. Definitely suggest that you stop by and say hello. She is a sweetie!  

Wishes to all for friends, good food and laughter and a blessed Sunday!

It looks beautiful...and the little farm is probably so much nicer than a Hamptons mansion anyway :)

What a lovely garden your friends have I am so happy that you enjoyed your time with them. The weather does make everything that little bit more especialy when the sun shines and it is nice and warm.
Love Sybil xx
