Linking up with Jean for our Tuesday Tours....I do have a lot going on in the gardens but only posted three flower photos due to a busy, fun weekend. It is familyandflowers you know..
Daylily purchased off the distressed rack last year so I hadn't a clue to it's color. Think I"ll keep it.
Am I clueless when it comes to Agapanthus? This one was the standard purple when I planted it. Why is it now white? Extreme heat, drought, age? or Luck? I have always wanted a white one.
If you are only here for the flowers, stop now.
We had a girls weekend...NO BOYS ALLOWED...okay well maybe just one and only for a very short time, when he left he was hanging his head.... This is our wonderful Head 'Husher' from church. When he dropped his wife, (my bff) off, our youngest challenged him to a 3 out of 5 basketball tourney. Loser buys the other supper. When are you picking her up? :) (thermometer reads 94 in the background and that was about 6:00p.m.)
I was very excited for one of our daughters (right) to have this student hang out with us, see she was visiting from France! I read a lot of French inspired blogs which are so interesting, I couldn't wait to chat with her. By the way, don't believe everything the French "inspired" blogs post..It's better to read the blogs that are actually posting from France. (and she wanted to see my gardens!)
(oldest daughter in high school)
I showed her how to make a domino necklace.
Mix up powder and tie dye t shirts. I wish you could have seen her precious face when my daughter pointed to her own tie dyed shirt and said, "Would you like to make one of these?" She made two!
The older girls chatting up the differences in their cultures. I did hear a lot of "how do you say?"
If this student is any indication of the French people, they have a lot to be proud of!! We so enjoyed her visit and exchanged information so we can keep in touch. My daughter made a piece of clay work at school, it broke in half..so, she decorated one half and our guest the other, then they exchanged the halves...isn't that just the sweetest?
We sent her home with a necklace, keychain, two tie dyed shirts, two small packs of kool-aid (she had never heard of), the clay piece, a pair of jeans and my bff gave her a FSU baseball cap from the business she runs. (She is interested in the film school at FSU)
Now, the youngest daughter in high school and her friends. This group was full of energy and chatter! They played Monopoly ( i see an empty cookie plate right in the center of the playing board), watched a movie, played in her garden which has a rope swing,
colored their hair with Kool-Aid...the entire yard and house had a hint of grape and cherry in the air.
We had hamburgers, baked beans and tater tots..Ice cream, cookies and soda....
It really was a delightful weekend and I pray it will be a sweet memory for all involved...
(win or lose) :)
