Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such great, supportive friends. I have been so touched by all the comments I have received about the article in Romantic Homes. Don and I can’t wait until we get to buy some copies at the bookstore. Would 20 be too many???
I’m still flying high…although I can’t fly too high in this horrendous humidity! We’ve had an incredibly hot, humid weekend here in the Northeast. Yesterday, I went along with Don to Woodstock where he played his music as part of a Concert on the Green.
Okay, I know I’m biased, but isn’t he cute? He did a bang-up job but by the time he was done I was ready to swoon from the humidity. I do not do well in humid weather. I could never live in the deep South. Although it seems more and more like the South here in New York this summer.
Continuing on in a somewhat random fashion, I was hanging laundry on the line the other day and I encountered this – also hanging on the line.
It’s the exoskeleton of a cicada nymph. (I had to do some research before I could tell you this.) Apparently the nymphs live underground until the nymph is ready to escape the exoskeleton as a winged adult. They dig their way out of the ground and climb up high. You can see the split in the back where the adult escaped. I was fascinated by this exoskeleton and the fact that it was still tenaciously hanging onto the clothesline.
Let’s end on a pretty note. Here is the surprise gift I received from my friend Joy of The Vintage Rabbit.
