A Perfect Day Out!

Teen 2 and I had a fabulous day out today. First we visited the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park, then we stopped to watch lawn bowling as we strolled to tea at The Secret Garden, then we drove to Old Town Antiques in Pleasanton where we barely had enough time (2 hours), to see it all. We need to do this again!

Hydrangea Season

It's hydrangea season here Amongst The Oaks so I made this lush bouquet this morning. I made one like it last Friday too for a little tea party we had. I don't feel bad at all cutting all these blooms because it's frequently so hot here that they just wilt on the plant anyway. I grow flowers for my enjoyment and cutting them and bringing them indoors allows me to enjoy my flowers just that much more. I hope you enjoy them too.
