A Garden Delight SMT

This past Sunday was the Tea Party that my walking buddy hosts each year for all us ladies that live in the Prairie. It's a fun time with lots of talking and some delightful food. What's really special is to be able to enjoy Shannon's yard and garden. Where my thumbs are completely brown, hers are definitely all green. I just wanted to share some pictures from her garden with you, and hope you'll enjoy seeing them as much as I did.

Inside her Perennial Garden. The Shasta daisies were still beautiful even though they had peaked.

This is a tomato plant that's been growing and producing all winter in her greenhouse. She needs a 10 foot ladder to pick those top tomatoes.

My contribution to the tea party was to make English Scones. We even had REAL Devonshire clotted cream and Lemon Curd(given to me by our Yoga Instructor who found it at the PX on base). These are deadly on the hips, but oh so good.

I'm posting this early enough that you still have time to get your SHOW ME post in on Sassy Cheryl's blog for a chance at a free Sassy Cheryl image AND a chance to meet and see what fellow crafters have going on in their lives.
