Did You Downton???

  I admit, I was not ready to see this series come to an end.  But, my sister and I decided we would treat it with the respect it deserved.  (I finally got to use my tea caddy!!)
  I found some "Yorkshire" tea at the local grocery store in the international aisle--we ended up making another pot with some Earl Grey--much nicer!  And, we each made goodies to nibble on while we watched.
  Yes....there were tears........

  The weather has been lovely!  In fact, we set a new record today with the temperature went up to 81 degrees!  My ornamental magnolia is now in full bloom....and the air is scented with the sweetness of those blossoms.  It has been several years since I have seen this tree in full usually gets bitten by a frost!!!

  Tonight we are in the path of that weather system that has been bringing rain to the southern part of our country.  Thank goodness they are not calling for any flooding.  But, all that rain means that the blooms will be beaten off of the tree.  You can see some of the petals already on the ground.

  This is one of life's little pleasures!

Hummmm.....great colors for a warp.......

Happy Weaving!

I don't Downton. I enjoyed the first couple of years and then I just lost interest. I do like "Call the Midwife" though and Vikings! ;-)
Love the tea caddy and the magnolia is divine. We are too high here to have them and too cold I think, but I would love to try a star magnolia. Maybe this year!

I did Downton, though not with that much style, we were in our pj's, on the couch! I always cringe when I see the magnolia trees come out so early, I hope they make it this year.
