  9. The orange slices are such a great idea!! Except oranges have been tasting sooooo good lately that I don't think I could bear to give one up. Maybe the unexpected heat is making me crave oranges?

  12. Hi Sandy, thank you for the nice compliments. The hands were made by me. I'm hoping to find time someday to make a fountain where the water pours from the hands. Someday!!

  19. Hi Cat, It did not take long for someone to discover the orange slices that you put out! Hope you had a nice Easter weekend. Your spring highlights are all lovely. I like the little whimsical touch of the spoon in the plant pot.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
