Just about the time I start feeling sad because the peonies won't be back for another year along comes the happy hollyhocks. They're sprinkled all around the neighborhood in almost every color of the rainbow. I have two of them behind the gate on the alley. The little fawns have been nibbling on them but they're determined to bloom! How can you not like such an optimistic happy flower?
Look what came in the mail today - from my own potter! A new spoon rest. All snuggled down in a Vosges truffle box tied with matching tulle this little sweetie came all the way from Alaska. I had chipped mine and she made me another one. I love the old typewriter letters impressed in the middle of it. Thanks Bean!!! Diane
