These varying hues of pink, yellow, green, and purple are most pleasing to the human eye, at least most would agree, and the Mountaintop is no where lacking in such colors. August marks the time when plants mature, coming to their full potential, whether it be to please the eye, or to feed a hungry mouth. Sweet corn on the cob is being sold across the county, as are tomatoes and melons and squash, among many other tasty and healthful foods. Also shown in this photo is Maryland’s state flower, the black-eyed Susan, bobbing its bright head. The summer is short in Garrett County, but certainly does not lack the season’s beauty.

Musings on summer – Ann Burnside Love – Frederick Post


I caught Ann’s piece in the Frederick Post, ‘Musings on Summer’ and I was delighted to see a mention of Deep Creek Lake:

“One of my life’s most delightful treasures is when No. 2 son, a retired Army Reserve colonel who works for the Pentagon, calls me every few days on his two-hour commute home to continue our conversation that began in his childhood.

He called while I was planning this column. I asked if he had any musings on summer. In response he shared recollections of a boy growing up on the edge of Thurmont , and this column took on its own life. With Steve’s permission, here are his summer memories and sensations.

— The warm, musky smell of freshly cut grass on a summer day.

…….

— The amazingly warm and enticing smell of baking bread while driving through Cumberland on the way to Deep Creek Lake.

Read the rest here.

Jay’s note: I share the love of fresh cut grass, but my musing on summer at Deep Creek Lake is the ‘smell’ of the breeze on the water. There is absolutely nothing on Earth like it, and its the perfect combination of flowers, trees, and a marine smell that makes me take a deep breath and thank God for creating this beautiful area!
