The bag has a shop barcode on GG.  I will snap the back of the needlepoint work so you can see it and how the three lollipop sticks were used.

Seeing the moon so close on such a clear evening was lovely.  My camera could not cope so this is what I got at 10pm before I went to bed.

Excellent photographs flumpy.  Thank you so much - so lovely to see  such a blue sky and the reflection of it in the water.  Yes ihave a huge moon at the end of my garden too.  It will be orange at 3am because of the eclipse.

The scones were scrumptious flumpy and I had a lovely time with my fb friends in the warm sunshine in the Botanic Garden and up my own garden.  The friend from Pittsburgh brought me some of her delicious home-made grapefruit jelly and a very pretty needlepoint decoration for the conservatory (too lovely to risk in the garden.  I must take its picture - such a lot of intricate work.  I was soaking up herbal lore as they wandered round listening in to their conversations.  One son arrived at two and worked till six on the front garden.  I have a really neat drive now.
