Bedrock Gardens in Lee, New Hampshire is the wonderful brain child of sculptor Jill Nooney and her husband Bob Munger. The garden is filled with beautiful flowers and well as whimsical sculptures. Here are some snaps that I took last weekend. Check out their website!
A friend of mine and his daughter took a painting course together. Not bad for a first try!
Here is one of my favorite second hand clothing store finds – a genuine vintage fur neck piece. What the fur actually is, I don’t know, but it sure looks like skunk to me.
It makes me think of this childhood ditty we used to chant:
Dead skunk in the middle of the road.
Didn’t look to the left…
Didn’t look to the right.
Now he’s a dead skunk in the middle of the road.
Singer Songwriter Loudon Wainwright III wrote a novelty song called “Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road” in 1972 that uses similar words. This is making me mistrust my memory of the ditty as a childhood thing. I clearly remember chanting the words around a campfire with a bunch of my college Outing Club friends about the same time. I also found a reference to The Beatles riffing on the song. Ah, memories!
Who knew? June is actually the hottest month there! Landed in Phoenix airport at 9:30 at night – 104°. Yikes! Flagstaff was a tad cooler. At least it cooled down at night in the mountains.
