Yesterday was one of those days that required more frog stitching than I like to admit. (def. frog stitching: ripit, ripit). But it's all good now.
Today we went on a field trip to LARKWHISTLE in Dyer's Bay. OMG. One acre of pretty much totally cultivated yard, and these two guys live there, charging $3 admission to visitors. I pinched a deadhead from one of the poppies (bad Helen, bad!) but I forked out the $2.50 to buy a seed packet of bronze fennel. I will try to find time next week and post a few pics from there. There were several small cement ponds, and many split rail structures, all with a functional purpose. If you want to see it, do it soon because they are retiring from public life at the end of the season.
