last giant magnolia bouquet

We are so sad to report that Chelsea’s Landing, our beloved family home in St. Michael’s, MD is in the process of being sold. So this will be our last summer there. And, though the official sale is good news for the family, it is oh-so-bittersweet.  Afraid you’ll see a lot of posts from the fabulous 17 acre grounds and garden, waxing on with less-than-faint nostalgia about the last time we’ll see, smell and taste each ripe, gorgeous fruit, vegetable, crab and flower as the season progresses. This Memorial Day weekend, it was giant Magnolia blossoms – and how lemony and heady they were. After trucking them back to the city, the scent has delightfully filled the entire apartment. We will miss you in all your glory, enormous flowering tree ! More to come …
