Back In Georgia




We are back in the USA after our wonderful visit to England!  Our son did a wonderful job keeping all the plants alive while we were gone and also taking care of the house.  It may be a while until I have time to do a proper post but this photo will give you an idea of just some of the plants that C. had to take care of while we were visiting family and friends.  We keep the flowers on the lamb's ears as long as we can, the bees love it!  It occurred to me how similar our garden looks to many an English garden. You can take the man out of England, but you can't take England out of the man!

Of course, when  I wrote that title for my post, you know it reminded me of the scene from the movie "Heartbreakers" which is a very funny movie.   This character is pretending to be Russian and when she is put on the spot and expected to sing something in Russian, she sings this song.  So funny!  (Have I mentioned this movie before?  I have a bit of jet lag and can't remember very well at the moment! )

Hope to be able to write soon about our fun times in England and there WILL be photos!

  2. So nice to have you back, Kay! I'm glad you had such a nice time, and I look forward to photos of your trip. Looks like your son did a great job while you were away; those plants look healthy and beautiful. I've never seen the movie "Heartbreakers" (or at least I don't think I have; can't remember it), but it sounds interesting.

    1. Dear Martha,
      It is so very funny! It also stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, Gene Hackman, Ray Liotta and Jason Lee and it is a bit racy but even my proper English father-in-law liked it! And Sigourney Weaver is one of my favorites (and my husband's too!)

  3. Welcome back. Yes, your garden does have an English look to it - maybe it's the hedging! I haven't seen that movie either,must investigate!

    1. Sulky Kitten,
      Thank you! We should cut that hedge back but it gives us such wonderful shade on our house and we don't want to lose that from this Georgia sun!
      You would love that movie, I just know you would. It is a bit naughty but all in good fun, and oh, I said in one of comments above all in starred in it, but Anne Bancroft was in this movie too, who is another one of my favorites!

  8. Welcome back and I sure look forward to your photos :) Speaking of Sigourney Weaver, we saw Prometheus yesterday (she's not in this one of course) and it was Fabulous - a must-see!!

    1. Hey Jane!
      We saw Prometheus in England on the very first day it was out! Did you see it in 3D? We didn't, and I wonder if it loses something if you just see it the regular way. I was a bit disappointed, not enough of the Captain, Idris Elba and too much of the robotic Charlize Theron for me! It was worth seeing but not one that I will rave about. That's me, I am so picky about my movies!

    2. Hi again, I've now seen it twice, lol! Once on the IMAX screen in 3D and the second 'just' haha in 3D - personally, I think it's best seen in 3D, where possible - IMAX was best. I'll be curious to see how it translates to the home screen. I personally thought Charlize was perfect for the role - she was more robotic than David! The exciting thing for me was that this movie now set us up for another movie (or more I hope :)

  9. Gosh, Kay, we've just come back from Georgia! Spent two and a half weeks travelling from Atlanta to Savannah, through Jekyll Island, Charleston, Raleigh and a few others (it's a blur at the moment, still suffering from jet lag) and then back from Atlanta. We had a great time and will post some piccies when everything's downloaded from my camera. Went to the Outer Banks too - which is amazing, and Atlantic City on the coast. Only problem - the weather - hope you didn't suffer from it in England too. Atlanta Airport's a bit difficult to negotiate, though - it took us two and a half hours to get through customs etc. when we arrived after a long flight. We love America, though.

    1. Dear Biddy,
      How funny!
      Are you singing "Georgia On My Mind"? Now, did you get yourself to Stone Mountain? The Outer Banks are beautiful. Atlantic City is not my favorite place but worth a visit, I am sure.
      Savannah, Jekyll island, Charleston, Raleigh...you really got around! Cumberland Island is south of Jekyll, and is a National Seashore and you can only get there by ferry. Even if you didn't go there, you should read about it!
      So sorry for any bad weather for you. And the Atlanta airport! Don't even get me started! It is horrible!!
      Glad you are back home in all that English sunshine!
      :-O
