When the women of our neighborhood gather for coffee, you know that there will be some of the most interesting conversation and discussion of your whole week.
This neighbor is a very involved woman in the summer time. There is family, recreation, doctor's appointments, home and community. So I am usually late, not dressed beautifully like everyone else and just a little tired. School will start soon and then the day will slow down almost to a stop.
Yesterday, when we gathered at Carolyn's, the room was filled with conversation and folding chairs. Plans were being finalized for an outing to the Japanese Gardens, a lunch and of course a ride on Max. Book club plans were discussed and deserts were eaten.
Carolyn has a beautiful cottage both inside and out. Inside little lights sparkle on the mantle and in the kitchen. Her displays change continually and are always a feast for the eyes. On her deck she has lovely flowers. A large planter is situation on a pot holder stand that is like the one I discussed earlier.
As I understand it Carolyn's house also the sight for a weekly game of cards hosted by her husband. They aren't able to get out much so the world comes to their cottage. It truly has been a blessing for our neighborhood!
Thank you Carolyn!
***I received a note from Dee yesterday about the pot hangers. She said:
I was at Fred Meyers recently. In front of the store were 2 free standing flower pot hangers. They looked to be very sturdy and held a lot of pots. The cost was $39.99. They were at least as tall as I am and had big healthy plants. They were very attractive. If you are out and about, take a look.
I will be going over to check it out. As you all know, I am in the market for something to hang plants on. Thank heaven Dee was reading and knew what our dilemma was.
