Only a bit of stitching happened, but it was a wonderful week...
Full of blue skies,
My sister's backyard, on the edge of a pond, is full of wildlife. Those who wandered through during my stay... house sparrows, titmice, red winged blackbirds, mourning doves, cardinals, oriole, chickadees, blue jays, nuthatches, goldfinch, grackle, red-breasted nuthatch, song sparrow, house finch, robins, catbirds, mockingbirds, hawk,...
...and a wild turkey! Not to mention the chipmunks, squirrels, and the swans that flew by. And the scent of the honeysuckle surrounding it all.
A great egret was by the bay.
We visited gardens and parks...
There were gorgeous flowers galore (and a couple of wild bunnies).
A moon gate. (Part of the beautiful gardens we happened upon at the Blithewold estate.)
Such a good time, with lovely wanderings and delicious meals. Nothing that had to be done. A week without driving, appointments, commitments or responsibilities, and other than some texts home, and two emails to friends, there was very little communication with the outside world.
And now back to things- time with the guys, a couple of more weeks of school, and some boats to finish.
