My girls say..pardon Monique's ugly soaker hoses..until the garden fills in..it's visible..she wants it out..she never uses it:)
Well I loved everything about it..
Her simple dress..I can think of many a gaudy bride..
I loved her loose tendrils..
I appreciate how it makes me content inside ..when ..having met someone this week at a store..the person said:"She doesn't have grace"~ re the Princess of Sussex.
LOL. Her reason..? "Because of torn jeans at Invictus."..and her hair...etc..
My daughter wears some and IHAVEAPAIR.That is exactly what she said."She wore torn jeans.."
That same person that mentioned that to me this past week..was never particularly kind to me.
She was rough and abrupt .And made some of my days miserable.
Long live loose tendrils and ripped jeans.
Long live the sermons..and the choir and Stand By Me.
Long live the Looks of Love..
Long live the MOTB and her daughter..
The Mulroney's twins:) The one missing teeth smiling so happily!!
I did not see everything..so I won't comment on some faces that could have smiled..
or teared up.
And let's talk about that archway of flowers:)♥
I won't point a finger at Harry marrying a divorcée.
I married a divorcé.
And was heartbroken when my church did not allow a wedding for me in my church.
I didn't know my husband when he was married..I met him 100 yrs later when I was 19..and he was already divorced.
44 yrs later..we're still married..
And you would not believe my fairy tale wedding at the Justice of The Peace when he looked at my husband and said:"Better luck this time".
OMGEE the 70's.:(
Shame on you Mr Justice of the Peace.
Thank goodness my dear dad..did everything he could to make my humble backyard wedding reception..lovely.
The day was beautiful and bright..the lilacs were in bloom..
My family and very few friends were there..
A friend at the time made my very simple A-line eyelet cotton dress.
Thanks dad:)For my reception..the Steinberg's buffet..Mr.Blackburn who took photos.
I loved how happy they looked..did you see this video?
Who doesn't want to hear that.♥
Diana would be..and is..so happy for Harry.
As my mom would have been..as although she was not there..she had liked my husband a lot at the time.
That's what I will miss later..if we miss later..not seeing my grandsons..in their 30's..40's..happy with their lives and healthy..not wealthy..happy and healthy.
I did also enjoy the guest list and what they wore:)
The dresses ..the hats..
The gardens are coming..SO alive..but because things happen in stages in May..nothing is perfectly photogenic except snippets..
All my plantings are done..except if I find a new fuschia..mine seemes to have been DOP..:( A small one..and maybe some more nasturtiums to eat.
I made scones this week,a whole new way..not sure if the result is different..I had always read and made w/ very little handling..this method called for folding and folding and folding..like puff pastry..anyway..
they were good..
so if you want to try this way..
go here..I am always grateful to people who share~
I also made this little cake..how many lemon poppy seed loaf recipes can one have and keep?
But this one was from SWEET..I booked it out of the library..and Googled which recipes were keepers..this one came up..
Ottolenghi's Lemon Loaf~
I baked mine at 325 Convection in one of my very fave pans EVER for about 40 minutes.I may have snuck it back in for 4 minutes at 320 Convection..Details..do the toothpick test.
I also added on fat tbsp of greek yogurt because my cream was not full fat..I only needed 2 lemons.
Mine did not sink one iota.
My pan is perfect for Mie De Pain..there is a cover that slides onto it..
It is from E Dehillerin,Paris,France..From my sweet young friend Lee-Ann..her husband Jon picked it out for me many many many yrs ago.It looks like new.It was made for this loaf LOL..:)
All the planting done
Excited about petunias this year with a new fertilizer
Some crabapples doing better in our area ..some not as well.
Serviceberry and Flowering Almond almost done.
Jacques finished painting the fences..looks so clean.
Forget Me Nots in bloom..violas..lilacs about to happen..happening:)
Girls are happy to come to me.I keep snacks in my pockets.
So cute.Caramelle ..the largest..is definitely the one with attitude..you should see me trying to catch her when she won't come in..Oh lala.
Although the tulips were not my fave colors..nice show offs lol.but like annuals here.
My dear foxgloves have acted like annuals also:( Gone girls gone.
Jack In The Pulpits coming up..such darlings in the fairy areas.
