It's Tuesday

 Greetings Blogger Buds,

Well....

While I was gone I got to meet the incomparable and talented Elizabeth Seckman.  We hooked up for lunch and had all kinds of fun. 

THEN the HH and I headed in to Philly to see the baby girl and SIL. On the way we saw this amazing rainbow. It was so big and pretty.



Once we reached Philly we were served a marvelous dinner that included this wonderful homemade tart.


The next day we visited the University of Penn's Morris Arboretum.











We also went to the gallery they were both showing at and to the zoo. More next week.

AND  last but not least.

That full rainbow is awesome, and that tart is just mmm, mm mmmm! My wife and I have been picking wild blackberries practically right outside our back door, and put them on just about everything while they last.
