I don't know what it is -- I don't know where it came from --
 I don't know what it is doing balancing on a steel rod out in the corner of our vegetable garden --
 I do know that every morning when I look out my bedroom window, I dream that maybe it could become a cloche; and just possibly become the star of Marty's Cloche Party on July 24.
 "Put anything of IMPORTANCE under a cloche, and it becomes a thing of beauty."
 I think I read that wrong -- it must have said, "Put anything of BEAUTY under a cloche, and it becomes more important."
Oh, well --- whatever --- dream on ---
or as my granddaughter says, "No es bueno -- epic fail!"  I think  I read too many decorating blogs.
Sorry, Marty, maybe next time.

Be sure to stop by Marty's blog, A Stroll Thru Life for the party on July 24th.  There really are clever and creative people out there that do magical things with a cloche.

As I continue to spread my lack of creative clocheness, I'm joining these other parties -- please, also, check them out.
