  1. I like Tony Bennett -- but I would really like him if I could see him in Perugia!

    Your delphinium picture is beautiful, but the way. That is a delphinium, right?

  2. Yes, wouldn't it be just perfection! The flower is a monkshood.

  3. He is sublime, isn't he?
    I saw him once. Sheer perfection.

  4. I like Tony Bennet and I know he is in no way equivalent to Perry Comom and I know you are a really nice person (you'd get my "kindest blogger award") but I also know you have a sense of humor so I'll tell you that post just triggered a memory of an old joke that goes:

    Q: What did they do with Perry Como when he died?

    A: Sent him on tour.

    Ba da bump.

    Sorry.

  8. Margaret, I had NO IDEA what you meant by 'Gordon Bennett' - so I looked it up! In case anyone reads and wonders:

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
