MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

I'm back...I hope

We had a busy weekend, with a lot of it being spent in the car. Thursday we went to Toronto to pick up #2 son and his GF (he was a groomsman in a wedding this weekend, so had to come home in order to do the 'duty' things on Friday before the wedding on Saturday). Friday we took a friend to a medical appointment, also in Toronto, and then picked up #1 son while we were there. Sunday we got in the car again and toured up to Bobcaygeon where the bestest (and hugest!!) ice cream cones can be had. Out for supper with my dad that night before we headed back to the city to return the offspring. Phew! No wonder I haven't had time to do any posting!! Obviously not much was accomplished on the creative front either.

Pictures today and yet more oriental poppies (I love them, so you're just going to have to put up with pictures!!). The bottom picture shows part of the view from the back of our property. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous right now.

Well, I guess you know the roads into TO pretty good by now. We sometimes take the long way home when we are up your way. I did at one time buy oriental poppies but for some reason they never took or else they got pulled while deweeding was going on. I must try again because yours are gorgeous.

Your garden is lovely. Due to no rain mine is finished for the summer I believe. I am trying to plant some "hot" weather flowers, so hopefully they will come up soon. Just more hot and dry here. Thanks for the pics, Glad you are back to show more.
