The party was lots of fun, good food, good friends, good music. Nobody caught on fire.
The man delayed his trip, because we thought that there was a clear sunny stretch of weather for the next few days, so he began cutting our best hay on Thursday. It rained on Friday, so we will try and save the down hay by tedding it twice today and hopefully it will be dry enough to bale tomorrow. Oh, I hate it when mowed hay gets rained on, but we are still grateful for rain.
I had a lot of fun gathering wildflowers, mushrooms, rocks… and making the arrangements.
Towards the 25th arrangement I reminded myself how grateful I am to be a retired designer, and I’m not going to quit my current day job (which is working for my animals, who in turn give us the finest food we could ever ask for.)
Here are the pictures for those who asked.
but I did have a good helper, to keep the fat pigs from trying to get on the table because they smelled the apricots I put in a few of the arrangements.
I was supposed to make two pies as well, which I had made the crusts for, but ran out of time. I’ll make one for the man today.
Two salads to make, and thankfully I had pear sauce canned last winter, so that did not take long.
