After my 4 mile walk/run and a chat with my momma, I came home to sweets from my favorite local chocolatier! We then set starting and finishing my flower garden. I had a list of native wild flowers that bloom most of the year and stay green all year that I had gotten off our local NPR station. I found some form of species at the local nursery and then we got some beautiful stones to compliment it all. Adrian, Paul and I spent two hours making it all happen. If they all make it I envision an English looking garden someday. The area we planted in was a plot we had been saving for our potted tomatoes, but last week we decided we'd keep them where they are and so I got the space to plan a flower garden! I was quit excited as I had been wanting one and especially in this spot.
Later we had a wonderful Salmon dinner with corn and grilled potatoes. What a feast! I also had gotten flowers as a gift!It was a lovely day spent splashing in the pool, playing basketball and ending with a good book all in the great outdoors of our backyard. Did I forget the great bottle of special wine I opened for the occasion?! Alexander Valley's Soverain and the grape was a Cabernet Sauvignon.
Here's a few of the boy who made it all happen.
And the man! Because to spite my strong feminist ways, I never want to do it without him!
