All that wind reminded me that I had this collection of clothesline pictures. Don't ask why but I thought they were pretty. I found them all on Google Images.
This one reminds me of my trip to Italy too many years ago. I'm saving up for a return visit.

They take off at a slow trot.
A few began to lose interest at the turn and started to snuffle and graze on the grass. Highly expert handlers shooed them along. It was riveting!!
I came home with gourds, squash and pumpkins. My condo looks very festive now.
Check out their website at www.pondhill.com They have tons of fun stuff planned for this fall - hayrides, the squash rocket and of course pig races!!

I missed taking a picture of my table. It was designed by a dress shop called Threads. The centerpiece was a Project Runway like cocktail dress made of fashion magazines. Our table favor was a lacy thong. Hmmmmm. I wish I'd been sitting at the Kilwin's chocolate table. The only one at our table excited was the 80 year old great grandma from Mackinac Island. The cause is good, the company enjoyable and everything was beautiful to see.

Amber came home, scooped us up and took us to Rain Forest Cafe for dinner. We saved room for their signature dessert the Volcano - a brownie tower with ice cream, whipped cream and hot fudge. Beansie was a little confused by the fireworks.
And yes we had a take home bag. That thing was huge!! Our waiter said they serve about 100 volcanoes a night.

to lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in Traverse City called Poppycock. Yum! The State Theatre is playing the foreign film version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I think I would like to see that as opposed to the what will most likely be the prettied up version with Julia Roberts. sheesh.
So today was supposed to be the one good day of the long weekend but it's cloudy, rainy and cold again. So I made some banana bread to bring to school tomorrow with a couple of tiny Martha Stewart flags for decorations.
Anyway as the title of the post says here is a beautiful picture of flowers made up of hundreds of cutout hearts. See more at http://mondocherry.blogspot.com
