For Two Local Friends


While going through boxes of photographs this week, I came across this one. It reminds me of the banner of my friend Louise's blog, Whispering Poppies.

Also for Louise, her very own Scarlet Poppy from the Flower Children book:

This is one very vivid and lovely lady!



Meanwhile over at Trout Towers, Susan is offering a tour of local spots. We tried taking our then 3-month old to the Beachcomber, but were turned away because he was underage. Really, no joke!

D'ya think he could even hold a long neck bottle of beer?


On the other hand, maybe it looks like he has had too much!

Years later, when we had moved to this spit of land, his senior class had a party at the 'comah and he had fun telling the story of being refused admittance when he was a babe!


Back to Chez Trout.
I seem to remember talk of topiaries for the garden.
Here are a few that would look right at home in that elegant abode!


Swan


Elephant and Giraffe


Hippo and Birdy

Looks like I'm going to have to nonchalantly invite Landscaper to the Stars over again! And thanks for linking to that post. I was awfully proud of my Photoshop handiwork, to Chris' chagrin.

I love Miss Scarlett Poppy! Thank you for sharing her! And as for the munchkin... it's too funny that he was refused admittance! What a story to tell! =)

Thank you for visiting my blog and Pink Saturday.

I seems like my son has been playing Magic forever. Now he has his own son (my precious grandson) who is ten years old. They play together and go to tournaments. They have a great time, but I am still fairly clueless. I just don't believe it is my kind of game.
