Since Don’s fitting was changed to Monday, we’re taking off early this morning for the Country Living Fair. I’ll be sure to take lots of photos for you. It can get very crowded, so I like going on a)Friday and b)early. Since I have Early Bird Admission Tickets, hurrah!
No telephoto lens, remember, so not at all the best quality, but the two babies were sunning themselves on the ramp to the shed yesterday and I knew you’d want to see that. That climbing plant that is hiding their entrance hole is a Climbing Hydrangea. I’ve had this plant for years and the information I read about it said it could take up to 5 years to finally bloom. Last year was the first time I saw blooms – and that was six years after I put it in the ground. There are even more this year.
This is what they look like as they start to pop.
Finally, I was the lucky recipient of another present – this time from longtime reader, Trudy.
Look at all that gorgeous crochet! There’s a bag, some dish cloths, a back scrubber, and that little yellow bag holds face scrubs. Trudy tells me you can put the dirty scrubs inside the bag, cinch it shut and throw them in the washer. Along with all the beautiful handwork is a bride and groom to add to my cake topper collection. This one is made by Royal Doulton. So elegant.
Thank you so much, Trudy, for such a lovely gift! I’m so impressed by your crochet and by the time and care you took in putting all of this together. You are such a sweetheart.
This is a short one, as I’m writing it on Thursday evening. I’ll have some pictures of the Fair on Saturday.
