I do not know how, but I forgot to tell you that those chocolate swirl irises I showed you last time, smell of milk chocolate. They are just wonderful as you can imagine. :) I took another photo for you of a second one that opened up today.
Here is yet another of the concrete poodles I made. Her name is Cocoa and she lives in the chocolate heart garden. :)
One last picture I took for you tonight. This is of a pink and yellow columbine that was planted by the original owners of this house. The wife was a lover of pink like me. I transplanted a few of these to the small garden we created on the side of the garage. I have planted almost all pink and purple flowers there.
I did finish reading Threadbare by Monica Ferris on Monday. It was a good book. It is the latest from her in her Needlecraft Mystery series. I have read every one of them. I may guess part of the mystery, but not all. The main character owns a needlecraft shop and has a gift for sleuthing. I was disappointed though. I am ashamed to admit that I did read the whole book, even though she did add probably 8 swear words in it. I find it sad when an author feels they need to do this. They don't. I do not like to read books containing foul language. I do not use it myself and find it offensive and just plain unintelligent.
The next book I am reading is also a fairly new one from the library. I love that place!! It is The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis. I already know that this will not disappoint me. It is number one in a new series by her. This time involving an "English" lady and an Amish man.
