  9. There are many reasons why I love visiting you here, well Chickory is a beautiful place, I love the photos that you share, your amazing art and I love reading about what is happening here with you, V, Trout, the hens and your garden...
    I also love it for another reason, as you know I love flowers and before finding you I had never seen or heard of a beautiful white and yellow trilium nor the beautiful 'spider mum flower'and many others, it is always a journey of wondefrul discoveries of beauty, warmth and friendship when I come here...and I thank you for it. ♡ xoxoxo

  10. I was freely independent yesterday and it was alright. Everyone left me the hell alone and I finished the rough of my latest project...yay! liberated from that 'til the proofs come back!!!

  11. Trout is such a beautiful, patient girl, I remember her decorated with the Christmas lights, wearing her she devil Halloween costume and now here with her American flag..."Hurry up Mama and take the photo, its hard work looking this cute all of the time"...she is adorable and I'm pleased to see she is looking much better.
    Love to all at Chickory. xoxox ♡

  12. Oooooh! I've missed a lot here in the last few days! I love/adore that fall arrangement artwork. Love LOVE it. And glad to see Trout is helping you in the garden!

  13. Actually, I have to back up and tell you that this photo just cracks me up. The husband and I have always joked that we were going to name our pub in England the "Trout and Cucumber".... but we envisioned the pub sign looking a bit different;)

  14. Happy Independance Day!

    I see the golden ganesh widget :)
    Good job on the art work. Really loved it. My widget's image too was built from your work.

  15. That dawg is bored wif zucchini. Better grow somethin' wif a bone in it.

  16. I had to BUY my squash this weekend!
    What are you going to do with the excess? If you grow squash, there's always excess.
    I wish I could turn Penny loose with Trout.

  17. Hi chickory - I listed your skelly under 'fabuloso'. No worries if you change your mind - xox Pam
