Wee Goddess of Fashion

Tonight was Back To School Night. Crowds of parents visiting class rooms, lots of people I knew to talk to. The teachers go over their procedures and explain the  expectations  of 1st grade. 3 different parents told me how much they liked Aeron's ensemble today. 

A polo with little horsies, a plaid skirt, pink leggings and stripy socks with sparkles. Oh, and a backpack almost as big as she is.

"Of course, you realize, this means war!" *

There is a gopher eating my roses! The body count is now 5 (possibly 6) dead roses and one damaged-beyond-recovery apple tree.

This was "Perfumed Delight". Also killed were "Mister Lincoln", "Double Delight", "Tropicana", and "Fragrant Plum".

That gopher is about to meet it's Maker!
