Happiness in Hempstead

Today, my friend Jennifer married her longtime love in an open-air ceremony set in Hempstead Heath. I can see why this is one of their favorite places to walk and spend time together!

The sun is actually out today – no overcast, misty morning here! – and the trees and ivies are all a-blaze. As well, many homes have blooming fuschia bushes, hollies, and a few other blooming plants that I don’t recognize.

The best part: Following the ceremony, we all walked through the Heath to the reception (held in a deconsecrated church) – and as soon as we were inside, the skies literally opened up!  But the rain finally abated as we all went home… what a treat this weather has been!
