Of Weddings And Flowers

Jeanne D'Arc Living clothing, gardening
Last Saturday we attended a wedding for my cousin's daughter.

We had a great time. I would have to say the reception was the best I have ever attended.

I wore my Jeanne D'Arc Living outfit purchased from Sissie at  Sissie's Shabby Cottage.

Many compliments for my lace tunic and pantaloons.

Perfect for dancing poolside at the Wilcox.

Congrats to Donna Lane and Rob!

The ginger lilies are getting taller - they will not bloom until fall.

The Queen Anne's Lace has made herself at home all over the yard.

My favorite part of the yard this time of year is the pergola at the front of the house.

Chucks built it for our 25th anniversary 10 years ago.

One side is white Confederate jasmine and the other climbing pink roses.

Just sit back and enjoy the view.  The aroma is intoxicating.

In the shade underneath are two hydrangeas I planted last year.


There are blooms on them.

Enjoy your Saturday - I will be outside working in the yard.

See y'all!
