Crapes are in bloom all over The Big City now. I captured these from my back porch early this morning. This is the third place these two trees have been planted in our garden, due to the building of our guest studio. The third tree is in the front yard...in its third spot. I have coddled them with the deep root watering/feeding tool; talking to them, begging them to live. So here they are tall and fragrant. I fancy that they are whispering to one another, “Oh damn, let’s hope she hasn’t come out here to blather at us again.”
This is a Fourth of July I shall never forget. I found my father...well I found out who he was and he was everything a daughter looking for her father could wish him to be. Through 23andMe, Ancestry.com, and kind on-line DNA relatives we found him. He was a WWII pilot in the US Army Air Corps. A relative wrote to me, “He was tall, handsome, successful...he died in 1991 piloting his private plane.” This is such a poignant day!
Tall Husband and I had hamburgers at Onion Creek, a neighborhood cafe. We always take extra hamburger patties home for Scooter, Skipper and Maggie. They went bonkers over the treat!
This is Maddie, one of my favorite pieces of art. A few posts back, you can see she was not in one piece. After a DIY art restoration, she looks more herself. After I reattached her hand, I polished her silver face, tummy and bum. Then I washed her little cheesecloth jacket and brushed her suede body. Her artist is Mindy Herrin. @mindyherrin #museumputty #loveedgy
A repost in honor of my hacked/high jacked IG account. Tall Husband thinks he has a green thumb...if so, that’s all that’s green around the bungalow since he took over the plants. OMG, hope he doesn’t think of feeding the dogs as his task!

Hope you are having a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Out on the back porch, I just learned that Scooter has been relieving himself on my Spanish Lavender and Rosemary, which I use in my cooking.🤫

“Red Roses” for my birthday! And with my initials in old French script on the bottle...from my Francophile daughter. Also, Tall Husband filled the Bungalow with roses.💝
