The photo contest of mourning vampires and peaceful mall is over, and wow, did you guys come through for me! I was totally blown away by the inventiveness of some of you. I am SO glad that I don’t have to pick the winners, especially in the mourning vampire contest. (phew!) They are all wonderfully Hollows. :-) I’ve got my favorites up at the website for your viewing pleasure. (Both mourning vampires and mall fronts) Again, thank you all who entered, and good luck to everyone! I should have a winner by next week, I’m thinking, so don’t forget to take a look at the signed pages of BLOODWORK that you can choose from in case you win.
It finally stopped raining here, and I’m hoping for some sun by this weekend. We’ll see. The last of my daffs have finally given up, and the lilacs are blooming! I am very excited about my lilac tree. I grew up loving them, and when I moved to SC, I missed them awfully. (too hot) Our new house had a very old one, perhaps even a herloom variety. I’m thinking it is at least 20-40 years old since it has a tree shape and was planted under a large maple that might have grown up around it. The maple has since been cut down. (It was in a very bad place and we thought it had a rotten core.) Now the lilac is singing in the sun. I did manage to get a few flowers this year, but it’s going to go nuts next after a summer of sun that it’s not seen in years.
