Another Grand-daughter with Personality Plus

Lola's Mother has dubbed her little gal 'audacious'. That seems a perfect description of Lola,{ at least so far in her 4 year old life}. It will be interesting to look back in a few years to see if this prediction holds true. 

And she knows all about the the story 'The Princess and the Pea' so this outfit was a happy coincidences that we chose for her Birthday,{apparently}!

So that's our Lola!
Age 4
{Going on 14}

Miss Enthusiaum

On an October Saturday Rilla and I just Play, play, play: 
Rilla at being almost 2, 
I at taking pictures, 
both of us at savoring this scrumptious Autumn day.

This excellent game goes like this ~ counting first ~"two, two, two"~ followed by  the leap. This is a very fun game and must be repeated  several times (fortunately without mishap)

My Forgotten Garden Post

Today Shannon pointed out that I forgot to continue a thread of posts about our first garden touring day with a few friends back in September. So here it is. (Way out of sequence, but oh well.) 
This is "The Bishop's Close" in Lake Oswego. (My Nikon camera's battery had run low by this time, due to poor planning, so I took these photos with my phone. Unfortunately many others turned out blurry.) In a few I managed to capture the wonderful color green,the contrast of light and deep shade  the amazing variety of trees and shrubs, paths and stone steps, woodland setting, ponds and ferns. All in all it was a marvelous and rewarding garden tour.

Rilla and Ivy were buddies all day.

In the Spring many shrubs and trees would be in bloom but we enjoyed just feeling the structure and play of light; the "bones" as they say.
