Comments for One Fine Day
Over the weekend we found this book at the used book store we were visiting. As Sean has the first George and Martha book, we had to get One Fine Day. Although these books were published when I was a child and my husband grew up with them, I didn't start reading them until I was married. My in laws introduced them to me. So when I read them I always think of my mother and father in law!
The summary in the front of the book describes the story as the continuing friendship of two hippopotamuses. From the books I've read, I've always gotten the impression that George and Martha are a married couple. That doesn't mean they can't also be friends but there is a greater implied intimacy between the two than just a friendship.
After the recent rains, Sean's fairy garden has burst into bloom. The nasturtiums we planted over the summer have their first flower. It's a glorious sunny yellow. As you can imagine, Sean is very proud of his first flower.
We also have three sets of herbs now growing from seeds in the garden. We have cilantro (coriander), dill and parsley. Of them, the cilantro is doing the best and we might be able to use some of it soon.
The pumpkin continues to grow but the squirrels are swiping the fruit before it can grow into anything useable. Nonetheless we're having fun seeing what the plant will do next.
