West Paris Aug. 5
Perfect summer weather has been with us for two weeks. There is promise of at least another week of the same. People's flower gardens are in full bloom and are beautiful everywhere. Wild flowers cover the fields and roadsides. It seems a bit early but the goldenrod is everywhere tall and bright yellow.
