Time to say Goodbye....

Ernest has been busy packing this week, I am joining him on a flight to Gatwick on Friday (just to make sure he gets there!!) Just look at all the goodies he's got, his home as a wonderful lavendar bag in it too so the aroma is gorgeous.

He'll then make his way to Wipso
I do hope her eye is better by then, she'll need all her wits about her to keep Ernest in check...

We've had so much fun with him but it's time to move on now.

I love hollyhocks and we have many of them around here.
Don't you think they look like fabric?
Yammas! to you 2, we had a wonderful week with you, hope to see you over here again very soon.

The hollyhocks look like tissue paper. So delicate. It'll be quiet without Ernest...

I LOVE holly hocks too. Once had more than 50 growing in my back and front yards. I think I have two this year? Where did they all go?

Nice that you had fun visit from friends.

I wish I was Ernest. Lovely travelling box. I love that flip flop!
Your hollyhocks are beautiful. I grew them one year at our other house and they are so delicate. I sort of miss them. May have to plant some more.
Safe journey to you and Ernest!

I like hollyhocks, yours are beautiful and so fragile looking! I hope Ern has a good flight back to Blighty, and you too!
Love Julia x x x

Ernest....hahaha, had to look back over all the posts that I have missed. Looks like he has been super busy! Best travels! The hollyhocks are lovely and look like crinkled gauze or crepe paper.

Thank you for being such great host parents for Ernest. He certianly makes his mark wherever he goes ( not sure that is a good thing ! ) Looking forward to seeing where he goes next.

Oh what fun you have had with Ernest. What a lucky well travelled lad he is too. I'm sure he'll enjoy his time with Wipso too even though there is sure to be less sun! Perhaps I can take his place??
Your Hollyhocks are glorious!

You're right about Hollyhocks looking like fabric. I think they resemble raw silk.

HI Jude

That is just the nicest message to read! Wishing your daughter a happy & safe delivery. I cannot wait to hear that you are a grandma - woo-hoo!

Ooodles of love

Miss your postings. When are you coming back?

Lydia said...

Hi Jude -

So very lovely to hear from you & Huge Congratulations on the arrival of Lyris (what a lovely name!) It must be very special being a Grandma for the first time.

Nights? Boo-Hiss! I worked them all the time after my first baby, and through my second pregnancy (in that hot summer of 2003) They can be knackering.

We've been to Cornwall & I thought of you when we went to Fowey (although I avoided it on Regatta week).

Take care - Hope to see you post again soon.

Lx
