Dandelions have also taken over the yard, and while we'll mow them eventually, I am actually really enjoying those little weeds. They're so pretty peppered around the yard, and dandelion greens are actually delicious, with a bitter flavor similar to arugula. Around noon I gathered a bunch from the yard and made a dandelion greens salad with tomato, bell pepper, and avocado for lunch.
We spent the rest of the afternoon working on the rock wall, then cleaned up and drove south to the Weathersfield Inn for dinner. It was our first time there, and we will definitely be back. The inn has a beautiful patio dining area with a fire pit, and the food was delicious. With only a handful of restaurants within a 30 minute drive from us, every place we discover is a big deal. On our way back from dinner we stopped at the ice cream stand that just opened back up for the summer, and shared a cone on the park benches out front. What a day!
