|The home that I am in temporary residence has a beautiful back yard with this magnificent Weeping Willow Tree and these giant gunner leaves that make such a wonderful backdrop for a summer luncheon.|
the leaves are so ginormous they are about nine to twelve feet across with massive thorns
|For over a year I have been searching thrift stores for anything with a watermelon theme from dishes to baskets, to plates, and napkins, mini bottles, candles, napkin rings anything with the goal in mind to out do any body else's water melon table. I was going to reign and be the WATERMELON Queen for the summer.Pretty lousy self esteem that I was thriving for I know only my stash is in storage again and this time I can't reach any of it.the storage unit is narrow and piled high to the top and with an extender ladder I can get to my stuff but sadly can't put it anywhere. Ever since I saw Candy's( Plum Creek) watermelon table last year I wanted to do a table of watermelon. A local dollar store had watermelon stuff and I did the best I could with what I found|
trying to volunteer at lots of festivals so I can meet people and get involved. this state loves FestivalsI went to a lake in the middle of the city that was fantastic, diving boards, paddle boats, kiddy pools, ice cream carts just a great way to spend a summer day.
the flowers are in such bloom here and the yard is so lush and green totally different than the dried out brown of California. The weather has been totally off the charts with high nineties that Seattle doesn't have or seen in almost 40 years.
The chairs are a bit rusty but I'm working with limited resources here.
|Well I hope everyone is enjoying their summers whatever your doing and I hope you enjoyed my little watermelon glimpse. I'll be joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch come and have some fun with us .With love and fond thoughts to all of you.Susie|
