elsa's garden

We spent last Sunday at my brother and sister in law's's for a Memorial Day BBQ.  This beautiful bouquet was her centerpiece, cut straight from the garden...


The weather was wonderful...their large shady yard proved the perfect place for a day of family fun.  I can't wait to show you all the whimsical touches they've added to the garden...

























A little friendly game of bocci ball...


bring out the measuring stick...


 this is my mom...now I know where I get my competitiveness from. Ha..Ha!




Such a fun day and such wonderful hosts...

Hope you all have fun family times planned for this weekend!

Blessings,
Patty

The yard and garden are beautiful. I can just smell those honeysuckle.
I picked a fresh bouquet of my own today, there is nothing like picking your own.
Have a great week.
