First dip of the season!

It is so gorgeous over here. Spring is in full bloom, the grass grows as soon as you cut it, the blossoms are out and the skies are bright blue and cloudless. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Today it was in the high 80's so the boys decided it was time to take the first dip of the season.

Molly loved it too compared to last year when she would only sit on a kayak!

Ladies Slippers

So apparently these flowers which are called Ladies Slippers are extremely rare. Here is a little info on them:

Pink lady’s slipper takes many years to go from seed to mature plants. Seed-bearing harvest of wild lady's slipper root is not considered sustainable. Pink lady's slippers can live to be twenty years old or more.

Orchids often have swollen, ball-shaped tubers that were regarded in traditional practices as having medicinal value. The root of lady's slipper was used as a remedy for nervousness, tooth pain, and muscle spasms.

A pink lady's slipper is a large, showy wildflower belonging to the orchid family.

Well guess what Percy Thrower ..if you are still around! I have at least fifty in my garden!

Yeah baby!

British Humour...

Sorry the photo is a little overexposed!

Tuesday, May 4, 2010


Once upon a time (again) in lovely happy smiley land the princess missed her special day "Whip'em off day" as she was on vacation.

Luckily for her on her return she was able to expose her ankles. She was pleased to receive written information from the king advising what was suitable & what was not.

Apparently from this day forth princess's can go without hosiery as long as their legs are well groomed!

The princess immediately booked an appointment with a beautician so that she could have her hairy legs streaked & permed! Who can clarify the word groomed???
