secret garden

Yesterday it was 100 degrees in Georgia,
with a heat index of 105-110.
It was m i s e r a b l e.

I wish I were here:

My friend's secret garden behind her Hampton home.

She always had a chilled bottle of sparkling rose' to share.
It was our summer staple for lazy afternoons
and good conversation.

You can't quite make it out, 
but there is a large raised gazebo between
the tennis courts and the pool
where we would sit.
A cool breeze would blow in from the ocean
and we would occasionally have to slip on a sweater 
while watching the girls swim.

I wonder what she's doing today...
