Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.
I hope the week going well for you and more settled weather. A couple of lovely days here but still some northerly winds making if feel almost autumnal. Still the garden seems to be thriving and judging by the courting going on between the various species of birds visiting the seed cafe and spa, there will be some fledgelings coming along soon.
I was out and about on Tuesday as the guest of the ever gracious author Marcia Meara. I shared a fairy story, based on my own rocky road to romance with frogs masquerading as princes and unexpected encounters…
I hope you will head over to read and also if you have not been a guest of Marcia’s before it is a wonderful place to be showcased and she certainly makes you feel special…..GuestDayTuesday – Featuring #AuthorSallyCronin – #BloggerExtraordinaire
