September 6th., 2007

I am saddened this morning to hear that the great tenor Pavarotti has died. His voice has many times made my heart ache and reduced me to tears. A great loss to the world.

I haven't done anything in the garden this week. I had planned on moving some of the plants to better locations but think it might be a bit too early yet. Tuesday and Wednesday morning I was volunteering at our new library helping to get it ready for the grand opening on September 15th. All in all, a very uneventful week.

I did take some pictures of birds but wasn't at all happy with them. I'm just not getting the same quality I did before..........! The Nuthatches are still around with their young. So small and cute. I kept this picture but am not all that pleased with it.


Some of the lilies are still blooming. I have to move a lot of them as I planted the bulbs early in the spring, not realizing that there were tall plants coming up in front of them. Never the less, I was very pleased with the display they put on.




Girls on steps.

Yep, the girls are great. Just wouldn't be the same without them around.

Nice pic of your girls. Funny how we refer to them as girls isn't it? I always used to call mine in saying "girls" lol.

The pic of the girls is great. Should be on a post card or something.

Hi again, OC

The girls almost looked like they were ready for the camera :-)

I am guessing that you could be a woman who has ornamental grasses tucked away in your garden – am I right?

I was wondering if you would like to join Layanee at Ledge and Gardens and myself with a post on ornamental grasses over the weekend – we thought it would be fun to see how many we had between us all :-)

My post is up now and Layanee’s will be up Sat/Sun. I have a long post - but I have been waiting for an excuse to ramble on about them for some time :-)

No pressure – leave one of us a comment if you do a post :-)

Enjoy your weekend,
Shirl

I was also very sad when I heard that Pavarotti had died. An amazing voice and such a warm and generous personality. So unsnobbish about his music sharing and performing with all different styles of artist. I had booked to go and see him last summer but the concert was cancelled because of his poor health.

Hi Karen,I would have loved to have seen him in person singing. What a shame that you missed the opportunity. I've often said that if I did see him in person I would probably just faint away and would have to be carried out. I don't think I would have been able to handle it as I break into sobs when I hear some of his songs on cds.
