Thank you!

It's not my turn to post today, but as Meghan says -- it has been quiet lately. So here is a thank you to everyone who reads this blog, especially those of you who comment: I wish I could send everyone REAL flowers (these are the ones I planted in my garden with the landlords' kids as described in one of the Real Children posts). Emily, your comment and post about your views on Mr.Darcy and Mr.Rochester when you were ten made me laugh out loud.

When *I* was ten, I thought that Rhett Butler was completely terrifying, especially in the scene where he tells Scarlett that he could squash her head like a walnut. I thought she should have married one of the Tarleton twins -- and not just because it would have been fun to go galloping around the countryside with them and their dogs.

Ten year olds may have the right idea: how much fun would those brooding romantic types really be to live with, anyway?

ooh, those are some pretty flowers! I wish I had a garden. Oh well, I have my crazy indoor plants.

Thanks, Meghan! This is the first garden I've ever had and I LOVE IT! I am surprised by how satisfying it is. I love my little flowers!

Stop by on your way to or from RI: I have a card and a fan letter I've been meaning to mail you for ages.

Wow, I can't wait to see your garden again in person! Are the neighbor kids excited?

Dear Libby, I'm so glad I could make you laugh. Aren't we so funny (and so pragmatic) at age 10? I agree Scarlet should have married a Tarleton Twin...or both! Wonderful photos of your beautiful flowers!
