Another Throwback Thursday… it’s officially a series. I found an old box of pictures, so let the games begin!

Spotted at the Kedzie Carroll garden board meeting. It’s here! A glorious day… the sun is out and the sap is flowing. Bring it on!
Rainer Maria Rilke, will you be my other boyfriend? Ok, so you’re kind of unavailable. It’s cool, so am I. We can just be pen pals… from the great beyond. See you at the next seance, sweetheart.
