I have mere minutes to write this. GG is on her way back from the train station with her Papa. Did I tell you we have another big party this weekend? This is a reception for Tini and Nirmal's Indian wedding. The fun never stops with this crew.
Today I did the flowers. A mid summer night's dream is the theme so everything looks very messy and magical Overblown peonies, blowsy garden roses, masses of jasmine and passion vine, mint, love in the mist, and penny royal are some of the magical ingredients. I hope to get some pictures tomorrow. They are sure to look lovelier on the tables than in the cooler.
But I wanted to get in a shout out for this Monday. Flowers in the house anyone? I've missed visiting you all and seeing what's blooming in your garden or what your farmers markets are selling.
I forgot to bring any flowers home tonight so I'll start us off with a big jug full of what's green and black in my yard. Bronze fennel, elderberry foliage, false indigo pods and leaves, grapevine and sage. Now this is messy. But delicious smelling.
So shall we do it? Who's up for a visit? Don't bother to fuss, we're only after the flowers and a pithy comment or two. You in?
