Erect against the garden wall they grow
The tallest flower of them all
Like grandmama’s they seem to know
The reasons why strange things are so.
Good morning Marblehead.
Coffee in hand I left the house Sunday morning and walked down to the town landing.
The fisherman load up their boats and the gulls called out to one another.
The warm sun was just up over the harbour and a cool breeze was blowing over the water.
Thursday night we walked up to Crocker park and saw the fireworks over the harbour. At noon, on Independence Day every bell in town rings out for about a half hour! It’s been 30 or so years since I’ve lived here and I had forgotten about that. All around town, from kitchen windows, from back gardens, from waterside parks folks stopped for a moment to listen to the bells ringing out in celebration for the day our country was founded. Wonderful!
