Well Hello there!
I know I disappear for a while every now and then, so much going on, and still no internet at Hedgehog Hill…don’t even get me started! Hopefully we will have some good news about that soon.
My other good news is that I was featured at Brenda’s Cozy Little House blog www.cozylittlehouse.com (Thanks Brenda!)
Wow I had a ton of people visit my blog because of Brenda and I did not have anything new up. I kind of felt like company arrived and I had crumbs on the counter. I hope that some of you who found your way here from Cozy Little House are still reading and keep coming back.
The other sad news is that my beautiful magnolia tree was frosted. We had several days of summer like weather so hundreds of buds formed, then a killing frost that turned all of the lovely buds brown. I am so sad! I have to wait a full year to see my beautiful tree in bloom….
But not to despair we have lots of other blooms.
I think Fairies live under that tree. The run around under the Myrtle.
We also have had a steady run of visitors on the pond.
I was amazed I got this close before he flew away. Most of the time the mallards arrive in pairs, but this day Mrs Mallard was off doing some shopping I guess, or nesting. One day a flock of wood ducks crashed the party and spent an hour or so splashing around.
They were a very rowdy bunch but very colourful. I was so glad I had my binoculars handy to see them up close.
I have so many plans for the next few weeks I hope I can capture it all in pictures and share with you here. I’ll be back soon! I promise.
