I think that's an old movie title. Sidney Poitier and a bunch of cheery nuns, maybe?

IN my case, it's just a lot of flowers in my garden (see photos), and also:Lily_2

a shameless plug (I get no commission) for Deerwood Gardens in North Waterford, Maine, where Beverly Hendricks raises thousands of daylilies of all varieties. I took my visiting thirteen-year-olds there yesterday (they thinking, Ho hum, gotta humor the grandma) ...then they were just as dazzled as everyone is on seeing the array of colors this time of year. I had them each pick out two...(and now I forget the names they chose, except for "Blueberry Candy" and "Aquarelle.") Bev went out and dug up their choices and so yesterday my visitors went on to their next stop (and how I'll miss their giggling!) with daylilies tucked in the back of the rental car.

And what's a great way to amuse 13-year-olds iif you have a good camera and know how to use Photoshop?

Here are the fake book jackets I made for them:

Lois, Love the name! My son Matthew introduced me to Gossamer - then I chose it for my book club this month. Wondered if you had any discussion questions you would like to share. I loved it by the way, it gave me many nights of sweet dreams after a scary surgery. Thoughtful son, don't you think. I believe you met him in Torento last year he is a valued teacher. I am so proud!!

I love the painting. It reminds me of one of Salley Mavor's fabric relief pictures in Martin Waddell's THE HOLLYHOCK WALL.

That's impressive!! Being Iraqi-American, I'm a native speaker of Arabic--that is one *difficult* language for English speakers to learn. The painting is lovely as well!

Love your new photo!
And I hope you like the painting in person... :-)
