The Adirondack chairs are certainly traditional in New England and upstate New York.

I left a comment on Marie's Montpelier's Daily Photo site that her photo today looked like it belongs in Brattleboro's Parade of the Heifers that you showed on your site.

Coolest July ever in Northern Michigan. Don't miss the heat at all.

It's quite cool here this summer, too, BSquared, but Fefolo left a comment on yesterday's post saying he recorded 43C inside his apartment. That's HOT!
I tracked down Marie's cow, Dave. It does look like it could have been pulled along the Strolling of the Heifers parade route.
Jacob, you are welcome anytime!

Saretta said...

Looks quite inviting! Do I get a glass of ice-tea, too? ;-)

brattcat said...

But of course, Saretta. With or without lemon?

slim said...

If you're cutting a lemon wedge, make that two please! I like the placement of the 4 chairs in the picture and I like the repetition of 4 with the windows in the shaded background. Beautiful black and white. Brattcat.

brattcat said...

okay, slim, that's two chairs filled. anyone else?

Birdman said...

Love Adirondacks, to sit to paint, to photograph! Enjoyed this look.

brattcat said...

Oops, you can tell i'm no mathcat. Jacob, Saretta, and Slim make three, and Jacob's 'we' was probably not the royal type so I'm thinking the four adirondack chairs have been filled. But there are a couple of extras in the background.

If there are no chair anymore, I don't mind sitting in the grass..All I want is to be in the shadow, I really need some freshness; (And I'll bring some home-made cupcakes to go with the ice-tea..Ü)

Sharon Creech said...

Hmm, I think if this were in color, I'd see those four chairs as inviting, but because it is in black and white, with the dark house behind, I see the four empty chairs as resembling tombstones. Does this reveal more about my state of mind or yours? ho!

Coming, bringing the wine!

Abraham Lincoln said...

Looks vintage 1943. Those chairs were popular in those days and I think are making something of a comeback.

Back then every small town had a carpenter who made them and painted them a shutter green.

They look good in this black and white color.

We had 55 this morning when I got up.

Cezar and Léia said...

so...as I see no available places now! :(
But we can seat on this beautiful green grass between some flowers and talk about good subjects...like cats! wowwwwww
So adorable place and it is soooo summer!

Got some clouds over Livorno after days of blue sky. Hope some rain...

I thought it looked like it could have been a picture from the 40's or 50's, but Sharon's comment certainly throws a different light on it.

Julie said...

The four in a row worried me until I guessed that was where the sun was coming from - which defeated the cooling off concept! So I choose to sit on the grass to close the circle.

What a wonderful conversation that would be ...

Hilda said...

Pretty!
In our case, we'd need umbrellas too ;)

Marie said...

I'd like so much to be there. I spent last summer in Connecticut. I dream of going there again. Your chairs are typically American. I've never seen any of them in France. Maybe we should start an import business :-)))

25C in Haninge today. And no wind at all. Save a seat for me.
