"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

More *Droughty* Photos

*You looking at me?*

Part of the Flock!  (There must have been over one hundred!)

 The Drought continues.. unseasonable warm weather - no rain... (we normally have over 10" of rain by now.....today - only 1")....  water rationing has begun in the Northern Counties...  we will be next.

White Plum Blossom Tree....  it had the most delicate, delicious scent... a little like Sandalwood..

Yesterday, I went out on a *final walk*  (before I depart for NY) to stroll about in the Sun and warmth... we visited *The Geese* out on the Polo Field...and then came across this wonderful tunnel - painted with bright colours and a great sense of humour!

Mr. Fox is so *smooth*! ♥

Most of you know I adore Bats!  Remember, no Bats....millions of Mosquitoes and ..no Margaritas!


The Peanut Lover

Another glorious Sunrise! 

Tomorrow morning, I am off to NY to spend 10 days with my guys - Chris and Bofie!  Packing all my *Woolies*... although I KNOW it is going to be COLD (I DO listen to your words and photos)...it is going to be a *Shock* leaving 70 degrees and going to 20!  A-ha-ha!

The Beekman Arms Inn in September..

The Beekman Arms Inn in January

I will miss you all.....  see you on FB and e-mail!


♥ Robin ♥


  1. Have a wonderful time, Robin. Maybe the moisture will follow you home. Meanwhile enjoy. Going sledding??

  2. Ah,,,I wish,,, no *scheduled* sledding unless Bofie drags me down the hill! Call you in a few...♥♥

  3. Oh my god, greenery and flowers, I'm coming to join you, honey.

    I don't think I know another person who travels so much as you, and this time of year at that. Do you not terribly mind airport layovers? Just the thought would keep me home.

  4. Wishing you a fabulous trip, dear Robin, with your favorite boys!! xoxo

  5. Our drought is terrible here, as well. All the cold but no moisture - fires are happening!

  6. Robin, I heard that you had an accident with some hot water, but I see nothing about it here. I hope you're okay.

  7. Waiting for your return........Sending loving thoughts your way!

  8. Robin, where art thou? I'm worried.
