Careful--Little Alberta Might Spruce All over the Yard!

What a chuckle I have been having! It is all in good fun! A couple of days ago I posted about my snowy surroundings and wrote about the dwarf alberta spruce in my front yard. This was read by someone who was very tired, and English is not his first language. So he thought that I was talking about a little person, named Alberta, "sprucing"...possible English slang for running around.  It later occurred to him that I was talking about little trees, and from there hilarity evolved.

is a favorite of mine. Christer's photographs of his home in Sweden are awesome, and he writes with a sense of humor, and describes his world in a way that makes you want to go visit. His dogs and cats are adorable. You should really check it out. I wish I could read and write in more than one language.

Have a great Saturday!
