I wish I fished

This is definitely a day to go fishing, in all the years I've lived in this town I have never experienced such summer-is-hereness. It's a make the most of it day so that's what I'm doing, I just popped in to show you this: my rather spectacular angelica:


Once the sun remembers where it is and things go back to normal I will regale you with family visit stories; don't let me forget to tell you the pile of toe-nail clippings one.

I'm intrigued by the angelica. One of my oldest friend's grand-daughter is named Angelica. Doed it have that hard sweet crunchy stuff on the plant If so yum yum!
Can't wait for the nail clippings.

Beautiful photo, Eryl! Toe nail clippings? Sound either intriguing or gross.

Pat ~ wouldn't it be great if it grew like that, all sweet and sticky? Sadly I'd have to boil it in sugar myself and it's too hot to be standing by the stove right now!

Savannah ~ you're not far off! XXX

Debra ~ it's pretty gross in a 'no way!' sort of way, I'll have to change the names of those involved to save blushes.

Fabulous photo !

Thank You for inspiring me to start my blog...

Parsnip ~ I'm thrilled that I did!

Brilliant photo! If it was mine I think I would photo-shop the power lines out and then get it printed onto canvas - large. It would look great on the wall.
Smoking?
Sx

I have to agree with Scarlet-Blue, I was thinking a wallpaper design or painted on a accent wall. The color is Fabulous.

Eryl Shields said...

Scarlet ~ I would have to ask my son to show me how to photo-shop – again!
If you want it, feel free.

Smoking, moi?

Parsnip ~ in the hands of an artist I do think the shape and colour could be turned into a great print. Sadly I'm not the one to do it.

Angelica! I've never seen it here, but i looks pretty.

Did you get a photo of the toenail clippings?

Eryl Shields said...

Kanani ~ it's a northern European herb so it would probably be too hot and dry for it where you are. It is pretty and monumental, this one's at least eight feet tall!

Kim ~ sadly no, though if I'd been there I would have.
