Description: For two summers, with with the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard for inspiration, I water-colored and hand wrote The Summer Book in my studio with all the windows open, ocean breezes ruffling the curtains and flower. Fragrances wafting from the garden. Long walks to the sea every day provided me with lots of day-dreaming opportunities. 

So, from the garden and farmers' market, to the kitchen and grill, from the beach to the backyard, summer in all its golden glory comes to you through my favorite delicious -- but -- easy summer recipes: Stonewall Beach Crab Cakes, Sweet Corn, Raspberry Soup, Pineapple Salsa, Roasted Veggies, Spice-Rubbed Barbecued Steaks, Summer Baked Apples, and Blueberry Bread Pudding.  

There are picnics and croquet and midnight suppers & decorating for house and garden and the best old pastimes of Library days & Camping & sleeping under the stars. Gather wildflowers, have a tea party, plant a knot garden, learn to draw & practice the fine art of porch sitting -- all reminders for you to make lots of memories this summer. 

To Henry James, "summer afternoon" were the two most beautiful words in the English language. I'm kind of partial to "summer evenings" myself. "Summer dreams" are nice too & I hope all of yours come true. 

With love from the Heart of the Home & me… Susan Branch
