A very cool movie theater posted on facebook that a favorite movie from my childhood would be playing for one day only. Not going was out of the question! There were girls in period costume, special occasion buttons for movie goers, and assorted memorabilia on display. Who knew that Pollyanna author Eleanor Porter was a local literary treasure? And that there is an organization that works to keep her legacy alive? I had no idea.
The peonies have returned in profusion, thanks to the worm castings donated last year by my neighbor, a bait wholesaler. (I highly recommend worm castings as a fertilizer — powdered gold! No clumping or fermented odor.) I wish I could share the flowers’ scent here — it’s spicy and sweet.
