I've been holding onto this idea for a love note for awhile, sort of like holding an ace of spades in your hand. Penny Ashford is a nature photographer, specializing in the light and movement of water, and she captures its nuanced beauty like nobody's business. Above is a detail from her "Splash Series". Can't you almost feel the sea spray hitting your brow?

Memorial Day weekend is four sleeps away. The excitement is palpable - like an evening's symphony of cicadas building to a cresendo. Summer is coming!!! This time it will include cocktail parties, weddings, dances, houseguests, and even hugging. If I were to inventory everything I love about summer, the internet would crash before your spam detector could even block this email. So I'll pick just one highlight - The Ocean House Resort in Watch Hill Rhode Island.
I had a stellar week - I travelled down to Charlottesville to set up for a trunk show at the very chic Quirk hotel (more on that below), undaunted by the prospects of a gasoline crisis in Virginia. Nothing was going to stand in the way of my great peony adventure at Pharsalia Farm, and a visit with an old friend and her husband. The beautiful interiors at Quirk, along with the Blue Ridge mountains and a profusion of peonies, inspired this week's color pairing.
