Ireland was amazingly sunny and warm for late May, but I returned home to find full-blown summer had arrived.  The trees are completely leafed out, flowers are everywhere, and alas, I’ve barely started my own garden.  I had such a vision!!

June is such a crazy busy month for me that I doubt I’ll get much done there until July anyway – and I’m just as happy to pick someone else’s berries or go to one of the many farm markets around here for my veg & fruit. Anyway, it’s the season for festivals all over the country ~ and in Canada and Europe too, as far as that goes.  You can take a day or an entire week to find your spot of choice and sit, listen, pick, strum, sing, eat, drink and rejoice – it’s a great way to support artists and the organizations that present us!

If you show up someplace where I’m performing plus come up and say ‘hey.’ Have a great summer everybody!
