I think the saving grace of a summer in a pandemic has been the socially distant backyard visits. Tonight it was Alice and two friends. Many days it is Margaret and Betty or Devon, or it is Lily and Piper and Hannah. We have made the most of our little yard this summer and I will truly miss these days and evenings when the weather turns. In many respects, it has been a good summer, even if it not the summer we planned for, or would have chosen.
