Making Christmas in Newport 2015

Linden Cottage - Christmas 2015
As the days from the tenth of December until Christmas seemingly get fewer every year, I found myself opening five tiny doors at once today on the advent calendar; remembering when there was lively discussion every morning here in Newport, RI, as to just whose turn it was and there never were enough doors and windows to go around.

Newport, oh, beautiful Newport, RI

It's June 2015, after one of the snowiest winters 02840 ever endured, the garden is looking lovely at Linden Cottage, and Newport, after appearing quite wrecked late this winter, has recovered and is ready for your vacation this summer. Newport's summer started early in May with the Volvo Ocean Race stopover which attracted some 125,000 visitors. I'm sure short term holiday rentals and B&B's were thrilled to get an early summer vacation season start.

We have a new family hatched this early spring, born in our sun room gutter. Mama Mourning Dove is now on the lookout while fledgling gets the strength to fly away on his own.
