Hedydd traveled to Vestavia Hills, Alabama for a play-date with the Sweet Home Hittys that included a visit to the LEGO Americana Road Show at the Riverchase Galleria. The highlight of the show was the magnificent United States Capitol building.

 

A Capitol Idea

The U.S. Capitol rendered in LEGO bricks – 25 feet long and 10 feet tall. Construction took eight master LEGO builders 1700 hours to complete.

The girls had a bang-up time viewing the exhibits, nibbling salty pretzels, and playing with the LEGO bricks available in the child (and doll!)-friendly zone.

Purl…somebunny special

Hitty Agapanthus heard a rumor that Purl, a single rabbit of impeccable reputation, had an admirer – a  young fellow, it was said, from a fine family. A family upright in character and tidy in appearance, though it was whispered they spent rather a lot of time playing together happily in the Land of Make-Believe. Agapanthus saw that as more of a virtue than a flaw. She set about securing a companion for both Purl and Her Boy.

Mr. H. Hop, a dapper figure in blue, was knit into existence and was to begin his formal training as Treasured Companion when…

Oh, dear.

I blush to say it.

Surely we must all know ’bout “The Habits of Rabbits”?

No?

Let's Go To The Hop


Purl, H. Hop and all his relations were knit from a free pattern, “Tiny Baby Bunnies” by Anna Hrachovec.

 

It simply did not matter that the air was so thick with humidity that Hedydd could lean forward and swim, nor that the day was so hot. The opportunity was not to be had in their own home and so would not be squandered while available. She left the Pie Society laden with boxes, bags and bottles and had a veritable feast – bubbling meat pies and flaky pasties – with friends and family.

Pie Society


It is somewhat sad, but true, that The Carver and Companion showed very little restraint this particular afternoon and even returned the following day to purchase additional gifts for celebrants and family. It was, honestly, a moment of “From Your Mouth To God’s Ears”, when, after bemoaning the lack of a cherished malted beverage the previous week, it was discovered, in abundance, at the Pie Society: Horlicks

A trip to the East Coast gave Hitty Agapanthus an opportunity to visit Fort McCallister State Park.  Along the banks of the Ogeechee River, grey-green moss dribbled down the cypress and giant live oaks.

The afternoon was deliciously gloomy, rain threatening across the marsh.

Aggie wandered along the jetty, where she discovered dozens of tiny crabs scuttling among the gnarled roots and driftwood. Many of them saluted her, waving their out-sized white claws in the air, inviting her to venture further into their sandy kingdom.

But the rain moved more swiftly than anticipated, and Agapanthus could not linger.
