We had family over for lunch today. I love entertaining! I've heard that you grow out of it but I'm not so sure I've heard right. The weather was delicious and I really enjoyed hanging out in our backyard - more so than other days. I think it was a combination of the warm sunlight, oh-so-perfect temperature at 75 degress and the smell of freshly cut grass in the air.
I bought a Fern this past Spring and it tripled in size - I just love it. [I'm thinking about bringing it inside for the winter but I must perform a serious pesticide treatment first.]
While staring at the Fern I wondered how it would look if I were to put pieces of it in a vase with water. Hmmmm. I started to pull pieces off the Fern and my mother-in-law suggested that I also cut pieces from an annual in one of my garden beds. The next thing I knew the two of us were off - buzzing around and looking for other colorful peices of nature to add to the vase.
We had fun. Here's a picture of what we snipped, clipped, pulled and cut from the yard.
