Been to Boston area and back. Dear husband said to me bright and early on Mother’s Day “Happy birthday!” My birthday is in August!
My penchant for Chinese export rose mandarin and medallion and curious small animals such as foo dogs came together on this top shelf!
It is not the usual way to put a well sized Chinese famille rose bowl on a what not shelf, but its placement on this shelf may have given it the home it needed to be seen, and now it is in a new home!
This is a great antique show that benefits Longfellow’s Wayside Inn which is a wonderful historic site outside of Boston. We went on from the show to the quaint town of Concord Ma, which then led us to get lost a few more times. But sometimes getting lost brings you to the best possible places. Taking a different route, we found ourselves near Logees in Danielson CT. I have wanted to visit this mecca for over 15 years! I order from their catalog, but being there in person is a magical mystery tour for plant nuts. I came home with some new (to me!) begonias. And a mystery to solve. I forgot to ask them what this was and when I downloaded the photos, I saw it again. Do you know what this is?
When we arrived home, the lilac were blooming and the garden looked beautiful in the bright sunshine. It may have been Mother’s Day, but it felt like my birthday.
