Dear Wendy-dog, please send Hannah a very big congratulations and tell Velma that I like natural history books as well... but she probably already, kinda knew that.

Velma said...

valerie, hannah is not at home but i'll tell her when she gets here. her mum spends WAY too much time reading those things, instead of taking me for endless walks, i get a measly three miles a day.

Valerianna said...

Lucky you, Wendy, I wish I got three miles a day!

leFiligree said...

wow, you both must be so proud of your girl!

BTW, i have that same Nature Through the Seasons book. love all the details in the drawings.

Velma said...

valerie, three miles is ok now that i'm 12, but i used to be so bored...
ronnie, thank you very much
lf, isn't that book something, so lush and over the top, but fine. velma tells me she used to read and re-read it.
