Bilbo arrived bright and early this morning!Not a sign of jetlag, he just wanted to get outdoors and see if Ireland was as green and wet as he had heard.He introduced himself to my Buddha who was a bit bemused at this tiny visitor!
Yep,Ireland is every bit as wet and windy as they say! It even rains from a blue sky, Bilbo in one of my pots getting some shelter and a bird's eye view of the garden.
We will take him on walk about today and hope to have him on his merry way by Friday afternoon.I will check the comments on Friday morning and get the girls to pick the next recipient and send him off.
Bilbo arrived to me with a couple of lovely gifts and a card from Anna, I know you are on Hols at the minute but when you are reading this Anna,a big Thank you.

So glad Bilbo decided to go to Ireland. He looks so happy next to Buddha and I think they may become friends. He looks lovely inside the begonias. Did I mention that begonias are my favorite flower.
I bet he's having a great time! I think Buddha will be a better influence on him than Jane was.
He's already visited me, but I wanted to see him in your garden.

Yes, I've been on Hols ;) and have been catching up here with you and Bilbo. You sure showed him a very good visit. I'm glad you like your little treasures I included. They were sent from my heart! I want to come visit and sit beside your Buddha.
