My mother-in-law, Faye Etherington, gave me the seeds for the miniature hollyhocks, actually prairie mallow and today they grow all over our farm. They are a sweet reminder not only of Rick’s mom but of her namesake, Faye, our little dog who died last May. With a hard frost coming soon, I picked what is probably my last bouquet of Faye’s flowers and put them in the sweet glass vase I bought last Saturday at Junkapalooza for a buck.
Our friend Rose who visited last summer has a new blog. Rose leaves a comment here on the blog now and then – she’s the one who gave me the Ernie Joe Mauer fabric from IKEA and she talks about it in her recent blog post. Here is the link. I hope this works since I’ve never done it before. If it doesn’t, let me know and I’ll try to figure it out, tech wizard that I am.
Back to the lawnmower – it’s a beautiful day and there aren’t that many left.
