Good to find you here...can't believe what wonderful guard "dogs" you have! Very charming. I think most of Susan's fans have a copy. I just got mine last week and have been reading in great snatches since. Nearly done and then I want to reread. Thank you for the embroidery gift...asters...so pretty just now.


I just ordered my copy from Amazon. Yours is the second blog this week in which there was praise for this book, and being an admirer of the English countryside and Beatrix Potter, I couldn't resist.


Oooh, wouldn't those asters be beautiful done in silk ribbon? I may just have to have one. Love the deer. They look so regal and so "at home". They are such graceful creatures. Yep, I know they can be pests but only because we have sometimes crowded them out of their natural habitats. Glad you had a great trip and thanks for the tip about the new book. I'm going to order one for myself. Thanks

What a lovely post Vicki. I love your birdhouse photograph, and of course I always appreciate seeing the deer. They are so pretty. Susan Branch's new book is wonderful! I enjoyed it so much, and know that it is one that I will keep by my bedside to dip into over and over again.

I love autumn too. It's starting to make an appearance here. It rained hard overnight, and we had lots and lots of thunder to wake us early this morning. We needed the rain badly. I'm so grateful for it. This time of year there are wild asters growing all along the roads on the coast in our part of the world. They are beautiful combined with the wild grasses.

I'm so glad you're home.



I have always loved the Sept. blooming asters...probably because Sept. is my birth month! The blue ones are my favorites. I enjoyed reading "A Fine Romance" and have passed it on to my Mom, when she is done, I will read it again.


Thanks for pointing out that book. I had never heard of it before and after reading your comment I know I will be putting it on my Christmas wish list. Thanks for sharing! Greetings from Germany


Hi Vicki
Always good to get home. I bet you have more mail to go through then the average person.
