Just got back from Anchorage where I went to see Eat Pray Love with a dear friend, who is celebrating one of those big decade birthdays.
This is her begonia. Literally. She loaned it to me to pamper this "summer" because she was going to be traveling a lot. It didn't grow very big but it packs a punch in what it did do. I've never seen such perfect, glossy leaves.
And now, 'cause every youngster and youngster-at-heart should have a carousel in their lives often, here's an Alaskan-themed one for Patti:
Caribou with Snowy Owl saddle.
Moose with Wolf saddle.
Walrus with Otter saddle.
Happy birthday, dear Patti.
Love and hugs, G
