OKAY ........why has blogger changed stuff - right when I don't have time to figure it out ????HELP
SO I spent the summer in the garden and visiting friends - remember this arbor I was building?  It is so loaded I am afraid it will tip over with the first wind.  so I am saying goodbye to my garden and to you - for a bit......I am leaving in the morning for three weeks in South Africa...I would love to have you come along:   http://www.theafricanqueens,blogspot.com/
see you in a few ....behave yourselves while I'm gone !!
