Our Perfect Day



My Sorbet Garden


The soft pastel pallet of colors in this corner 
remind me of sorbet.




 And it's the perfect place to reflect on Our Perfect Day.

The garden was absolutely beautiful...
but the bride and groom 
were simply radiant.

  ♥♥♥

And yes, I finally get to sit and enjoy...
with my grand-kiddos.

  1. Your garden is beautiful and I love that birdbath! I've never seen a shiny, blue birdbath before. I want one! I'll add that to my list of things to watch for when I shop. :-)

    1. Thank you Donna. I'm hoping to show a few pics of the event once they are published. My hands were too busy greeting guests to snap any of my own. We stood in line for two hours, but oh how delightful it was!

  8. What a pleasant little space! I just saw a birdbath like that at our local Agway but I am having to rethink my birdbath as our new neighbors have a cat that they let roam freely... I'm really bummed about it and Raphael, my Indoor cat doesn't care too much for this other cat coming into His yard! lol! Lots of hissing going on...! Congratulations, I know it was a beautiful day! :D
    Happy July 4th my dear friend,
    Hugs,

  16. Carolyn I'm so glad it didn't rain and the gardens looked pristine and something out of a gardening magazine. It must be a lovely backdrop for all those wedding photos.

  18. What a beautifully designed garden you have. I love the soft pastel colors set off by the green. We have enjoyed many wonderful days in Salt lake, especially Red Butte gardens. Gorgeous setting against the back drop of the mountains.

  20. Congratulations! I hope the heat let up a bit for the reception. Last Sat. we had 22 people for dinner in our backyard after my youngest sister went through the temple before going on her mission in a couple of weeks. I've been telling my husband that someday I'll have a reception in my backyard - if all my kids marry in December, then I'll recruit someone else - and then I can die happy. He just chuckles and maybe rolls his eyes, but then he helps with the heavy lifting out there anyway.
