A Summer wedding and a country garden

We went to a wedding reception on Saturday. The bride (on the right) met my daughter in the 1st grade and they were best buddies until we moved away when they were in the 5th grade. Now they are married ladies!

I took this picture of the happy couple, the rice looks great flying through the night air.

This reception was in the backyard of my friend Janet's house. She has a great crafty talent for making things look fabulous. Here is a look at her Secret Garden.

She dressed up the side yard of her Orange County home. She is very modest but I can say that her home is as delightful as this happy spot.


Don't you want a fountain like this? I do. So clever!

I have to explain what this is. Janet told her husband that the only thing she needed for her birthday was Time. Well, this is a photo of what he made her, it's a Sun Dial ...right under that flower in the center is the thing that casts the shadow. The markers on the bottom are the numbers for telling time. he researched how to make it accurate and gave her some "time". Very romantic!

I promise that there will be some knitting content soon!

Cute garden. Now you have to help me figure out what to make with my one skein of Ozark Handspun that was $34.00!

Hi Peggy,
Love your friend's garden. And the sundial--very cool.
