Hola!

Yesterday Prince Harry married American Meghan Markle and I couldn't get enough of the royal wedding. What a gorgeous dress, the bride was radiantly beautiful and the church at Windsor - oh my goodness, the flowers alone were soooo beautiful. There's nothing like a good love story to make one appreciate how precious we can be (and should be) to each other.

I'm glad the weather was perfect yesterday for the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding. I can't say the same for around here. Spring keeps teasing and then going away. This morning I woke up to a "balmy" 47 degrees F outside, rain, damp, and I turned the heat back on! It's May 20th, the heat. should. not. be. on. Period.

Last Thursday, however, was beautiful. I was able to get a goodly amount of yard and garden clean-up done over several days last week. I also took some photos of my flowering tree anchoring the north corner of my house and made the current collage. I think it's an ornamental cherry, and on the the other end of the house, I think that's called a purple sand cherry? I'll have to check that. The blossoms on the tree do not have a distinct fragrance, but the purple shrub that wants to be a tree (despite my hacking it back, back and back yearly - I'm losing, by the way) has myriad blossoms with a distinct fragrance. I can't decide if the scent is too beautiful to bear or too awful to smell, it certainly can be overpowering!

This coming week will be the third cut of the grass this season. We had rain late Friday night and then for several hours earlier this morning. This rain, on top of the rain we had over four days the prior weekend, and the grass is growing like nobody's business! I don't mind doing the grass, though, as long as it's not too hot, too cold, not raining, and not too windy. I'm not picky at all, am I...

I still have a lot of raking out of areas that suffered from snow mold over the winter, and have not yet really tackled cleaning out the north flower bed in the backyard. That will be a chore!

But Memorial Day weekend is coming. This coming Saturday I will be out with a friend (who has a nice large van - goody!) stocking up on potting soil, top soil to fill in never-ending low spots in the yard, grass seed, and lots of plants! For some reason, this spring seems busier than those in prior years. I can't figure out why that is...

All the International Vogue Editors Will Hang Out Together for the Very First Time Next Month October 11, 2011

This apparently unprecedented moment of unity will take place at Japan Fashion's Night Out, which will be hosted by Vogue Nippon editor Mitsuko Watanabe in Tokyo on November 5. British Vogue reports that this is the very first time that Alexandra Shulman, Anna Wintour, Franca Sozzani, and Emmanuelle Alt have banded together for a social function. Hopefully the Milan scheduling debacle will be straightened out by then, because otherwise there might be some tension in the room. (On the other hand, if things are all resolved on that front, it'll be super laid-back and no one will judge each other and everybody will do shots together, like normal Vogue parties!)


I know that Anna Wintour is NY Vogue and Franca Sozzani is Vogue Italia.  Evidently Shulman is British Vogue.  Does that mean Alt is Paris Vogue?  I don't know how old Sozzani is, but she has not aged very well - unless she's 100.  I read recently that Anna Wintour is 62.  She looks great - wonder if she's had "work" done on that face?  She hasn't changed her hairstyle in about 40 years.  No wierdo hairdos for that lady, nosiree.  She knows what suits her and she keeps it. 

Some of the comments!  LOL!  I thought this one was hilarious:

The cast of Sex and the City have really let themselves go, haven't they??
