No these are not up yet, but I had to remind myself how great they looked. I don't think I'll have any this year, those darn squirrels. I could understand if they needed to eat them, but they don't they just pull them out and leave them to not grow. UGH! I was at the cemetery the other day and someone had brought a lovely flower box full of these beauties and here's me chasing the rodents away and digging them in deeper. In my back flower bed I put chicken wire around my flower bed and it seems to have worked, but I can't do that everywhere or I'll be picking my letter carrier out of the wires. Wouldn't Canada Post like that? What's he doing cutting through my flower bed, I've already told him to stay out, every time he thinks I'm home he does the all the way around route, but I have evidence to the contrary, who does he think he's messing with, I watch CSI. Anyway hope the weather where you are is wonderfully sunny and springlike and the blooms are a plenty.
Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce from at home with books
On the reading front, I finished The Burning Air, Erin Kelly. HOLY SMOKE this is definitely going on my list of top ten. If you like a little mystery and a whole lot of thriller, you must read this one. Love the character development and the story line was just so gobsmacking in your face, I'm sure the look on my face made people on the train move to another compartment. BRAVO Erin Kelly.
On the creative front, I finished my princess chair. The group have decided it should be called the preparation H chair, when I remember to take a photo, you'll understand why. I won't have it home for a couple of weeks, it will be in the booth at the Creative Festival along with my cork chair and stool. Now the request is to write up a little journal of the two transformations and the story behind them. And I'm finally getting around to making a couple of cushions from some gifted embroidery, my aunt created. I'm going for a McKenzie Child's look, with a little wild animal print, the clerk at the fabric store was looking at me kinda strange.
