Quick Reminder, while running....

This, I am delighted to report, is my back yard! The ground cover is wild wood violets, and although they don't show so much, they range from deepest purple to white and this yard is my great delight. (Mr Dearling likes it too - no mowing!)

However, this is a reminder: Today is the last day of my First Blogiversary Contest! The question was, "Guess how many toques I've knitted?" I e-mailed the correct number some days ago to the Lovely Daughter for verification. This is because I am honest, and besides that I'm a Notary Public, which means I am certifiable documentably honest.

DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES IS MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, MAY 25, central daylight time. Why yes, I AM always up that late. What's your point? I am old, and can stay up as long as I want, so there. Even eating Stuff that's Bad for Me.

I am hurrying now, as it is my time to go plant some attractive blooms at the gravesite of Lucius Fairchild, Civil War hero and 10th Governor of Wisconsin, about whom more later. I do this each year and it's a very special time for me.

I love the violet cluster!!!! And I love the fact that your hubby won't mow it. He gets some serious points for that. Can't wait to hear the story about the flowers at the grave...
