The grandest gifts hung from my gates in the bright early sun yesterday...
A wonderful distraction from a super exciting project I have been working on.
(meant to share yesterday, but life got wacky)
Two bags full, waiting for me to spot them.
I opened them up, and then, that scent.
That real apple scent.
That sort of scent that reminds you of being 6 years old and picking the most delicious apples from your grannies tree.
The kind of apples you haven't had since.
One of my dearest neighbors from down the lane, who is also a friend, came upon such a tree you see.
A tree covered in little green apples.
Ripe apples filling a tree in June.
The owner said, please, take as many as you can.
She took some for herself.
Then told me, and of course, I said I would love to have some.
And so, the next day, voila.
Thank you Bru!!
Boy, are they delicious.
A tiny bit tart.
They stole me away from my project.
A project I can't wait to share, editing photos now.
Oh, it's fun.
It's for the mad tea party.
It's for you to do too, if you want.
If you'd like.
But you must ;)
My assistants yawn and nap whilst I work feverishly away.
My sis is here.
The a/c broke at her house.
So, she came here for some reprieve, while waiting for the air fixer upper.
She is grading papers in the other room, and watching Chocolat.
I can hear Johnny Depp now.
Lovely distractions have found me.
Apples, a sister, plus her tiny furry baby - Douglas.
Pure dog's world madness here today.
Miles LOVES other Male dogs.
He follows them around like a puppy.
No matter the size.
I am not sure what my sis is doing in the above photo.
She says it's a tribute to the movie Legend, where the girl puts her hand out to touch the Unicorn.
As for the skies.
It's a bit cloudy.
A chance for rain, but no cigar.
Pleeeease mother nature, send me some rain.
Will you ask her for me?
Oh and, let's not forget the distractions of sleeping babes.
On his back, that Miles sleeps.
Legs outstretched in the air, for hours and hours and hours...
I think we might have to start a circus.
If I could only train the endless ants in the yard.
Ant hypnosis maybe?
Will he levitate, that Furtunato?
Guess who is the best behaved pup so far today?
He hasn't tried to tackle anyone, and he is under my feet sleeping.
Okay, off to finish the last part of this secret project, then edit photos, and then, bring some ideas back here to share.
Okay, before I go...
Today is random song sharing day.
I didn't know that, did you?
Whatever song, whatever the first song is, that pops into your head right now - you must, must share it with us.
Leave a You Tube link, or lyrics or what the song reminds you of even.
Don't fib now, what song is it?
This is what first came to my mind.
Reminds me of teenage summer.
But, I also have a little Siouxsie and the Banshees runnin' round the brain...
Remember that? Fun!
See you beyond sooooon, with making ideas!
