One of the things I’ve been most excited about this year is this poppy.
I planted it four years ago. It has come up faithfully every year, but has never given me a flower. This year, I have –count ’em– TWO!! It had a flower when I planted it, and I think it was a salmon color, but I can’t even remember.
Ali recently brought home some covered jars from clay class.
I just love these, and I love the colors that she chooses for her projects. They are resting on a mosaic table that I made last summer from broken dishes I’ve gathered.
Ali & Maddy just got back from seeing Shrek 2 and loved it. They especially liked Puss-In-Boots and were surprised to have recognized Julie Andrews as the voice of the Queen.
