From the North

 Hello friends!  I've been up in Washington visiting my mama and my sibs.  I was gone for a week.  
 I'd like to share the pretty things with all of you!





















My homeland is the land of tulips and other lovely bulbs that bear beauty! I had salmon for dinner three nights in a row.  Bliss!


Badger is in Ireland!  Check out Mag's post.  He's already thoroughly enjoying some Irish-style hygge! I forgot to kiss him goodbye so Mags kissed him hello.
He'll stay with this lovely Irish hostess for a while and then he'll head to England.  
I'll write more soon.  I need to work through a week's worth of mail and shop for Miss Bug's birthday gifts today.
Bless you, kind readers.

I love all your colorful photos, especially the flowers and the greenery. Everything is white and lacking color here.

Love the cup and saucer chandelier and that bench is caling your name.

I'm glad Badger is feeling loved and welcome. I'm sure he'll have lots to talk about.

Have a good week back home.
Hugs,

So many lovely and unusual sights! What is a large group of swans called? They are magnificent!

Welcome home, Pom! Glad you had a great visit. All those pics are so WARM looking. Are you sure you were in Washington? haha :) That casserole looks fabulous, and the tomatoes on top make it look healthy! Yummy. So excited (squealllll!) about Badger, I can hardly stand it. I think Kezzie also said she's love to host him. She's in England. Do you read Kezzie's blog? Probably do. She'd be a darling hostess. Love you!
