    We had a lot of people come out over Saturday and Sunday. It was wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it so much. We had water stations all over for it was one of our hottest days.

    Everything looks great Barb!
    How do you keep the water so blue in your Lady and the basket fountain?

    What a beautiful garden Barb :) I can spend a whole day there and the wood stove is lovely.
    Having al fresco dining in your garden must be a wonderful experience ... I'll love it!

    Those are wonderful pictures. Alice is huge!! Such a pretty shell she has. That outdoor wood stove is a great idea. I bet you guys had a lot of fun at your gathering.
    Pond lily is quite beautiful! Do they have an aroma?

    Oh those Hostas are beautiful with the coneflowers. I must divide mine this year, they are getting out of control. You have an amazing garden.. I like the bird houses, that is creative!! I love all the little statues too!
