Thanks for sharing Maggie, like you that owl stole my heart he is adorable I would love to see it in person. You are so lucky to have peonies blooming, one of the highlights of my many visits to Japan were going to the peony flower shows in the parks they were unbelievable and some times difficult to get up close to see them as there were so many photographers with their huge tripods LOL Cheers Glenda
I was there too in the Yanicka Quilt Booth. The quilts were magnificent :)
Thanks for the lovely photos. The Owl is gorgeous.
