Aren’t we all ready for a bit of sun, fun and frolic? As we delve into warming weather and budding trees, I can’t help anticipate my favorite months in the Hamptons. We all have different sensory memories signifying summer. I think of water, the warm Hamptons light, fruit and vegetables emerging from the earth and landing at local farm stands, top-down drives to Montauk and bike rides on East Hampton’s back roads. Summer feasts loom large too: lobster, steamers, steak on the grill, fresh corn barely cooked, heirloom tomatoes from the garden with heaps of basil and fruity olive oil, local peaches running with sweet juices, Round Swamp’s peppery arugula – and lots of summer garden candlelight. Let’s not forget the progression of favorite summer flowers: lush peonies, fragrant arms-full of lilac, July’s rose gardens, bountiful hydrangea, road-side zinnia and sunflowers, late summer dahlias. As we all wait with baited breath, here are some photos I captured of last Summer’s bounty. Long live Summer!
