It's time for us in the Seattle area to say goodbye to Bilbo. We enjoyed his visit, but we know it's time for him to visit someone else. First he had to make the rounds to say goodbye to all the friends he's made here.
Some of the pond fish came to say "Bon Voyage".
One of the garden gnomes wished him well.
The fairies enjoyed having someone to water their plants for them.
My oldest daughter drew the name of his next destination. He's on his way to England to visit Julie of My English Country Garden. She's promised him tea and scones. I only wish I could go with him to see her beautiful gardens in person. He's getting his passport ready and will be departing in a couple of days.
Even a bee said goodbye while it worked in the Catmint (nepeta).
Once he arrives there you'll be able to see his visit in her gardens and enter to have him come and visit yours.
If you haven't visited her blog yet I highly recommend you do.
