This week's challenge over at Inspire Me Thursday is purple and orange. I can't resist using a poppy photograph I already have; it's one of my favourites. The summer of 2005 was a good one for my gardens; I especially love that this poppy was a "surprise" that year -- I never planted it and so it became my mystery flower. A gift from a passing bird, perhaps?
On another note, the update on my son's missing record bag is that, well, there is no update. Nothing has turned up yet. I must say that I am so proud of my son -- he's quickly moving forward on the whole situation and not wallowing in his misfortune whatsoever. He has already started to replace some of the missing items. The good news on that front is that one album that had taken him a whole year to hunt down -- one of the ones we figured would be impossible to replace -- was found just yesterday at some obscure record store in Europe that sells online. Hooray for the internet!
