First off - I'm going to be teaching again at Tat Days!!! I'm so pleased to be doing this again. If you've never been to Tat Days before, you should seriously look at coming. Really. It's the most fun! Did you ever go to summer camp? Did you have a good time? This is summer camp for tatters!
As you might have realized, we have Critters at our house, and not all are the ordinary, domestic variety. The other day our friend Bubba brought us this box turtle. He was afraid it would be killed where he found it. Here it is in Larry's hand.
Isn't this the cutest little critter ever? We're taking care of it for a while to help the little guy get bigger. (DH used to be a registered Wildlife Rehabilitator, and he knows about such things.) Then we'll let this fella loose out in the woods. Box turtles can live a long, long time.
We have more beauty blooming in the area. The Southern part of the US is known for magnolia trees, and we have bunches around here.
There are two sets of magnolias flanking the front of my subdivision. These are about 25 feet tall. Magnolias have large glossy evergreen leaves and big white blossoms.
|Not a professional photo - I took this. Really.|
Here's a blossom up close. The blossoms are really big, can be plate sized when fully open. This one is about 8 inches across. And see how pretty the leaves are? You can see why these are used in decorations all year round.
Here's a neighbor's clematis on their mailbox. I should get some of this - I like clematis.
Tonight we are taking Curly out for dinner. It's his 20th birthday!
