( now we won't have to pay the admission fee to the CT Flower show to get more!)
I have been bringing home a few pieces from every trip to Mexico for awhile, but this way I can get some bigger pieces that wouldn't fit in my suitcase!
before I went I asked Alan how it would be if I brought home a Talavera sink--he nixed that idea & I didn't think there would be any anyway. Lo & behold almost the 1st thing I saw was a sink!
This is a photo of some of what I got--I bought the tin ornament of the luchador for Alan!

On Sunday we joined a few friends to have a picnic & visit at the Coon Club.
|Fish were stocked so folks could go fishing!|
|Getting ready for lunch!|
|After lunch, my friend Paula & I went walking around & spotted these pink lady slippers--quite a few of them in one area. Then we got out the bow & arrows & shot a few rounds!|

White Flower Farm & I arrived, list in hand, about 10 minutes before they let people in to shop. I learned to go on their website beforehand & narrow down my choices!

|I planted Allium for the 1st time last fall & they have started to bloom|
|I like the contrast of the purple color with all the green in the yard.|
|If you look at them real close you can see there's lots of tiny flowers!|
|And the best thing--they survived the trees falling all around them!|

|At 7 am this morning this old maple decided to fall. We were very lucky that some of the branches only brushed the house--I saw them going by the 2nd floor windows!|
|I asked Alan & he said the tree was about 100 feet tall! Here's what's left of the base!|

|Another campsite along the way--probably a month or so into the trip! Despite the trials & tribulations on the trip-(-I never spoke to my friend again after we got home) I think this is when the travel bug bit me!|
