It was HOT over the weekend - 100^ hot. And of course, this was the weekend for our friend's daughter's wedding and outdoor reception. The outdoor venue was a delightfully shaded property with a natural, spring-fed creek running through it, making the afternoon quite tolerable and as the day wore on lengthening the shadows and the evening was absolutely perfect. Son Geoff spun the tunes for the reception, his first attempt and probably not his last as he was truly in his element and had a great time doing it. DH was on parking duty, guiding guests to the nearby field. The sun was fierce, but he was well sun-screened and carried an umbrella to keep the rays at bay.
There's nothing sweeter than holding a sleeping, drooly baby on a hot, hot day. Baby Ilse became a bit fussy, so Nana took her and swayed her to sleep - the best party of the day for me. :)
Fred Meyer had a great sale in their nursery over the weekend so I bought a couple flats of plants with my pots in mind. On Sunday I visited my favorite nursery, Heritage, and found some plants that I couldn't find at FM, plus some Key Lime heuchera, and a scabiosa. And the weather has cooled off (with even a few drops of rain) so today is a perfect day to plant.
Well, it's time to pick up my kids at homeschool p.e., so I'll leave you with a couple of pics of my garden this morning.
