What is so rare as a day in June —

I like June. In June the days are long and sunsets are late, the no-see-ums and green heads haven’t arrived yet, and we can spend time in the garden until 7:30 PM or even later if we have the strength. We had a great gardening night with our next-door neighbor, planting her flower boxes and pots and weeding the garden. Three little boys helped along with two Sisters and a Brother. Working together we got a lot done, and it was followed by fun talk at a meal anchored by yummy hamburgers, Caesar salad, and ice cream bars. What do you like about June?

About Gardening Gran

The first time I heard Mother Cay and Mother Judy speak was in 1972 at St Paul's Church in Darien, Connecticut. M. Cay talked about seeing a bright full moon, big and beautiful in the sky above. She thought, the moon doesn't generate light by itself -- it is all reflected light from the sun, and that is how we are supposed to be--reflecting the Light of the Son. That led to many retreats at the Community, one in Bermuda, a pilgrimage to England and Scotland, and finally building a house and moving to Cape Cod in 1980. I was privileged to have been on the Liturgy Committee for the first planning sessions for the Church, and to see it grow from seeds of ideas, into what it is now. Through the years here I have enjoyed writing, studying chant (and being glad that I had taken three years of Latin in school), working as the General Manager for Paraclete Television and Video, leading Shadow Tours when the choir travelled the world, and serving as President and a development officer for Gloriae Dei Artes Foundation. I like to do all kinds of needlework, read, paint landscapes, garden, play tennis, swim, watch the Red Sox, and be outdoors. What a loving God--to plant me in such a beautiful place, on a beach next to Cape Cod Bay!
