I am so excited to be blogging again. Summer vacation has given me time to discover the issues I was having uploading pictures. Issues have been fixed; so now I can blog at will.
I have lots of flower pictures to share, starting with these taken of my mailbox. I am excited to have discovered just the right flower for the back of my mailbox. It does require watering every single day, but the results just keep getting better and better.
The Long Table Party is quickly becoming our favorite way to entertain in the Big Woods. My Lynchburg Sister and I set up this party to entertain a favorite group of ladies from our church called the Hope Circle.
We chose a nice spot in the field beside our barn to set up the tables.
It was my Lynchburg Sister who was the creative brains behind this adventure.
The colorful napkins are from the Pioneer Woman line and tied with jute.
The awesome lanterns came from the Spotted Cow store in our local town.
The church ladies seemed to really enjoy sitting around the table and visiting.
My favorite part of the night was the program presented by our leader about the importance of sitting around a table with your family at every meal. It is something my family has always done, and I cherish that time.
Every guest left with a lovely miniature succulent that was setting at their place at the table.
And now, we all have great memories of a relaxing evening gathered around a table.
I just created this succulent garden in one of the hypertufa pots my sisters and I made two summers ago. I decided to take some of my individual plants and put them together to make this garden.
I really like the way this turned out. I think I will enjoy the succulents a lot more this way. I have several succulents ordered from a place in California. I can't wait until they arrive, and I can make more mini gardens.
