A visit to Clive's.....

Judy, Linda & I took off this morning (along with lots of other people) and headed to Fordland to check out Clive's sale.  We fell in love with his house several years ago when he invited us down for a tour.  You talk about falling down the rabbit hole -- that's the exact feeling you get.  It was also about 20 degrees cooler there.  Check out some of the sites.
Guess who I ran into -- Kenda & Debra.  I told you everyone was there.
He has about 10 porches for enjoying so Linda decided to check out the Adirondack.

So much of the yard he just lets grow naturally & not with weeds but wildflowers and herbs and all kinds of shrubs and bushes. 



Clive and his friends intend to have a monthly sale.  Next time he's having one, I'll post it.   It's sooooo worth the trip.

Have a great weekend!
