This blog, published free of charge since September 2007, is a way for me to stay in touch with seasonal bookstore visitors from afar and with all customers and friends when I am closed for my annual "seasonal retirement" in the winter. Thank you so much for following Books in Northport and for supporting Dog Ears Books.

Michigan Summer Color for Kathy in New South Wales
Rich, lush green predominates Up North this time of year, but there are many other colors, too. Some are in flower beds and pots. Even neglected flower gardens, I'm pleased to report, continue to bloom.
The meadows and fields are also full of color.
And in the kitchen garden, color is just beginning, with promise of much more to come in the weeks ahead.
We've had good growing conditions this spring and early summer in northern Michigan. Flowers and trees, fruits and vegetables, humans and other animals are flourishing and happy.
P.S. Kathy -- Yes, I do have my red, white, and blue flowers in the bookstore windowboxes again this year. That would be a good picture for our holiday tomorrow, wouldn't it?
