Ladies Night Gathering

Last evening I hosted what I hope to be the first of many
Ladies Night Gatherings....  a few of my favorite neighbor friends came to visit

We think it may become a monthly event, hosted at different homes each time

As you know, I love to decorate...the green, white and yellow theme was
chosen from the pretty hydrangeas that are blooming now.

Started digging and I came up with more green wares than I thought I had
Green & White Enamelware made for great ice and drink containers on the beverage table.
Lime Mojitos and Lemonade were served

The table I set for friends
a simple potted plant wrapped in burlap for favors to take home

Maygan made the Welcome Sign
I spray painted placemats for on the food buffet..burlap with a fern frond for a stencil

a buffet of munchies...Fiesta, Crab & Vegetable Herb Dips with crackers & chips
my friend Traci brought Chicken Wing Dip...a delicious Apple Dessert by Melanie and Pat brought yummy
Mint Ice Cream Treats from Skinny Cow!

 We have had a frenzy of wildlife lately..  I took this picture on July 4th..
note the big Gray Fox int the background along the tree line.  He/she was hoping for a quick lunch of baby turkey who the momma hen had safely retreated to the tree above.  The two large birds in the photo were trying to divert the fox's attention

Blessings Friends,

Blog Deserter?

I feel like I am a blog deserter...  
Don't post, don't read posts
shame on summer time

A little bit of what's been happening in these parts

The lastest addition to my shanty

Maygan & I made this sign a week or so ago
and we made this too, using up scrap wood from the shed

My potting bench got oiled....FINALLY

The kitchen garden is growing with lots of help (and not from Mother Nature)
she is slacking on her watering duties this year

tomatoes are starting

lots of cuke blossoms

Just this morning we had a big flock of turkey come through the yard of the camp next door
many hens and babies.....then all of a sudden into the picture comes a Fisher
above photo was not taken by me

Hubby and I had seen one about 3 weeks ago walk right up the tree line by my garden, now I'm starting to think it has taken up residence in the back woods.  Anyway, this morning it was after the turkey!!  I made hubby run in the house, grab the gun and fire off a shot to scare it away.  Let's hope it went far away.

Seems like I should have lots more to share, been busy as all get out, just not sure how much has been accomplished.  I love summertime but it seems to be so busy and is gone in a flash.

Wishing you all the very best!
