Years ago we used to host the end of the year party every June, and many of our friends, and Tom and I also, had our retirement parties here. We thought it would be fun to provide the venue for one more. So we have been spending lots of time on the yard, primping and making it pretty and perfect.
The vegetable and cut flower garden is taking off.
We'll have a few berries in our new raspberry patch.
June is a time of exuberant abundance in the garden.
Hydrangeas are beginning to bloom.
The front porch.
By the now empty green house, the tomatoes are soaking up whatever heat we get in the afternoons.
We'll be ready, hoping the weather cooperates, and glad that someone else is providing the tables, chairs and the food. Hopefully they'll bring the fun too.
