Posted by mrssmythe on May 27, 2019 in Cooking, Critters, Garden, Week in Review |

Well, we’ve made it through May, with its heavy schedule of rehearsals, graduations and jam-packed weekends. Much rejoicing! Two perks to the season – We’ve had fresh flowers all month, thanks to the bouquets ┬áreceived for opening nights and performances.

A Lazy Fourth…plus Odds and Ends
