Had such a fabulous celebration of Frond’s 1st Birthday on Saturday – it was a bright, bustling delight of a day and I felt so chuffed and grateful to be part of this terrific community. To all the Frondettes who attended – you looked beautiful! Thanks for your support.
My Star Village neighbour Brian from the Coin Bear gave me a gorgeous bunch of flowers above which floated a big, bouncing birthday balloon which is still dancing in the breeze on my deck at home. I’ve never received a birthday balloon before and it made me feel like a happy little kid!

It was such a thrill to be visited by the Chung Wah Society’s Dragon and Lion troupe on Saturday. It was a fantastic atmosphere in the Star Village and the lion did a very thorough circuit of the shop and dispatched the Frond lettuce with great enthusiasm! I love the way the troupe shares this very ancient Chinese tradition so generously with the greater community – it was a real kick to be part of it!
I’m excited to be receiving a visit from the Chung Wa Society’s lion tomorrow to bless the shop and bring good luck for the Year of the Rabbit! I’ll be sure to bring a big, fresh lettuce for him. Sounds like the Year of the Rabbit is going to be a good one. I particularly love this description of the rabbit and hope that, in this guise, he hops often into Frond over the next year: “With his soft speech and graceful and nimble ways, the rabbit symbolizes graciousness, good manners, sound counsel, kindness, and sensitivity to beauty”. Aww.
