("Pizza By The Pond" will be closed Sunday May 22nd in honor of our son's
high school graduation. We will re-open on May 29th)

This past Sunday was yet one more of many blustery days that we have endured over the past couple of weeks. I know that the wind is necessary in order to usher in the warmer weather, but it can definitely erode on one's sense of humor and patience. As my capacity to endure the crappy weather shrinks, it's always good to remember,( as the wild critters know all too well) that there's no sense in wasting precious energy waging war with the weather, especially when peace and pizza can be found nestled in a quiet cove.One of the benefits of being tucked into a hillside is that picnickers at the"Grotto" are able to enjoy a placid and quiet afternoon even though the wind may be blasting about on the higher pastures.

The various ephemeral wildflowers are a true bonus and makes a daily fiddle head harvest even that much more enjoyable. Since their bloom time is extremely short lived, the daily woodland walk is always different, the previous day's flowers are gone and new ones have emerged!
