Garden Party

June 8, 2008

I got my camera back, so, as promised, here are the photos of the carrot cake (decorated with fresh flowers), and my new bed ensemble (It looks better in person, and you can’t see the bedskirt, which is striped):

I have some more pictures I want to post. These were taken at the Botanical Gardens yesterday. A little birdie joined us during our picnic lunch, and had the cheek to hop over and steal something from my plate..

Highlights of our visit included the rose garden:

the sculptures by Henry Moore,

and “Darwin’s Garden.” (The first shot is a recreation of Darwin’s window looking out on the garden.)

It would have been a wonderful day if not for the oppressive heat. It’s much too early for it to be so hot. According to the forecast, it’s supposed to be 97 tomorrow and 98 on Tuesday. I hate this weather.

    Gorgeous pics, delightful new bed, miserable suck-ass weather. I cannot believe you trudged around the botanical gardens in this swamp muck! I refused to leave my house. At all. You are a brave girl. ~LA

    Oh, ugh. That kind of heat is just about unbearable. The flowers are beautiful, but what I really like are the Henry Moore sculptures.
