May 25, 2014::off our beaten path

This week's garden post comes from our home in Kentucky...the one that is still for sale though we are settled happily in Indiana.

Our youngest boy's sweet birthmom got married this weekend. The kids and I travelled down earlier in the week so that I could do the flowers for the wedding. It was a very special day...though Brice still contends they should have gotten married in a tree. Go figure.

She is very special to us and we were so happy to be able to join her and her family for this happy celebration.

We were lucky enough to be assisted by my mom and grandmother, and dear friend from across the street. The kids enjoyed being back; just being in the place they all remember as home, and visiting best friends as well.

We have new renters moving in and needed to ready a few things for the new family, so we hauled our air mattresses and camp chairs down and roughed wifi...GASP!!

It was so nice to be back for a visit. Our garden there is quite a bit more modest than the one in Indiana, but everything there is special because we started from scratch and did all the landscaping and planting ourselves.

Though we missed the lilac, we enjoyed our peonies so much. After a few years of barely blooming, they are finally thriving.

There were a few other plants in bloom to welcome us back...
Oak leaf hydrangea

We enjoyed our old friend this weekend.
