On the Saturday of my visit, we met Linda Nicholas (Solange Shelties)at a fabulous restaurant/bakery/kitchen supply-and-more place called "A Southern Season" in Chapel Hill. We had a wonderful lunch and then did some browsing, aisle upon aisle of every sort of kitchen and cooking accessory, teas and coffees. I bought a Santoku knife (green ceramic!) and a combination garlic slicer/chopper ... oh sure, I can get those items up here, but now I have some terrific souvenirs!
After lunch we went back to Linda's for tea and to visit her lovely shelties. I think Linda must have three hummingbird feeders (maybe more) and I was able to get some fairly decent photos (certainly not all of the same bird!). This one butterfly was hanging around a lot, putting on quite the performance. I don't know what kind it is, but it put on a very impressive show!
