As for the previous weekend's garden tour? It was hot! I had to drink my weight in water when I got home in order to recover from the relentless sun and heat. The yards were so sensational that I felt a bit depressed about my own when I got home. To top it off, I discovered that some kind of pest has taken up residence in the tree in the front yard which has caused the death of some leaves and possibly some branches. I think the branches need to be cut off and burnt, as I'm assuming it's a worm of some kind that has spun the freaky webs on the branches. I'm hoping it's not a spider, 'cause I sure wouldn't want to see the size of spider it would take to spin those webs!

couldn't see it at all.
I'm finding needlepoint be the just-right amount of mindless occupation for my hands when I'm thinking or talking about something else. So I guess I have something in common with Penelope Trunk now. This is also why I am able to tolerate playing Skip-Bo or dominoes (I hate almost all games), you can do it while drinking coffee and visiting, since it only requires a modicum of attention. And here I thought I couldn't multi-task!
