Fairy Ring at Comet Lodge Cemetery

Yes, I know that real fairy rings are made of mushrooms, but I like to think of this circle of daffodils as a fairy ring.

Sorry about the faraway photo. I didn't feel like stumbling down into the cemetery because I'm sick and headachy and disoriented (not used to wearing glasses after both my eyes got infected, and not used to only hearing out of one ear because of this horrible sinus congestion) and big and pregnant and clumsy.


I wish I could believe that elves or fairies or spirits created this ring, but I have a limited imagination. I mean, I could see them floating around, sprinkling wildflower seeds in a circle in middle of the night, but I just can't see them digging the holes to plant all those bulbs.

Hey! I didn't know you were pregnant. (I have a lot of problems with the grammar of the prior sentence but am giving up.) When are you due?

PS My struggle with grammar forced out my sentiment, which is in two parts: 1. Congratulations, I am excited for you! 2. I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks! I'm due on August 25. We're having a girl.

Congratulations on news of your pregnancy and sorry you were feeling so ill recently! I knew something was up when you hadn't made mention of Georgetown's Art Attack held over the weekend.

Your blog is great as I live in BEHI and often don't have a clue about what's happening in my own neighborhood...so...Thanks!

Seth says congrats as well. I know full well he knows how to comment on a blog but he didn't so I'm saying it for him!

And: You were completely right to tell me the sex as that puts you right up at the top of the knitting/sewing queue.
