An Okay Day

Well, so far there's been no luck with the magic egg...

It sure looks pretty though...

This evening I took a break from paperwork to meet my good friend, Cathy Hazel, in town for dinner...

Cathy has graciously offered to be the Editor for my garden book.  She's meticulous, intellectual, and is honest when speaking her opinions, so she's perfect for the job. Just one step closer to a finished product....

Thanks Cathy!


  1. the egg looks beautiful in the nest! Did it scare the ducks?

  2. Nope, they fiddled around with it a bit.
