Stella's yard at the little lake in hicks ville.
a little gem amidst the not so gem like stones!
Canada goose, aye?
Not a favorite with our Ms. Stella, who objects to sliding through slippery large goose poo. They are encouraged to go elsewhere.
an adorable little white pup comes to the door and receives a biscuit, he takes it home to show the others, Stella includes everyone but the geese in this tea party.
Tulips in her garden
Tea sandwiches, fruit,blueberry scones, whipped orange butter, lemon squares, and flour less chocolate cake.
Stella rocks a tea party!!
Stella's mouse house is expanding, The OMG factor high! The mice are pleased.
and so this is our "nice" week end from the weather forecast. Dark, windy, cloudy, and there will be buckets of rain to be sure...They just do not know anymore, the weather, the earth. - it's own boss.
Blossoms blown off before the pollinators can do their business.
Mason bees not too sure about the temperature, huddle in their hidey holes.
Fun stories during the tea party, My favorite was Francy's, who lived in Oman about 30 years ago where her "wasband" worked at the embassy. One day there was a massive tea party put on by the Sultan. Lavish beyond reckoning, flower arrangements taller than a person. a banquet of remarkable artfully arranged magnificent beyond dreams fairy tale food, except that it was REAL. Francy , not sent an invitation, decided that it must have been overlooked , dressed up and went anyway. Invitations were checked before one could enter, Lucky for her it was, again, overlooked, she. allowed in, had a very good time and a good nosh, while the Sultan strolled by, behind red roped off area, not even a nod to the guests. No body minded, Francy, only regretting no pockets in her frock.
