Stunningly, simply beautiful photos and sentiments. I love the crisp white draped tablecloth in the alcove, covering your family gathering spot. Thanks ! Gina

Hi Erin, fantasy photos, my dear. I would love a garden even a little like yours, and of course your camera makes it all come to life! Ethereal beauty!

I want to hear all about the PaRtY. I just know it was magical. I bet the first timers to your home went wild with glee. Your photos just slay me girl! Are those birch trunks I spy on the side bar? I want that blown up for my wall. Oh pretty please?

Tell me all about it when you get a chance OK? I can just feel the air and scent of Franklin. After so much time spent there, I wonder if I'll ever return? sigh.

and oh, bloody marys and Jammies. You really do know what is important in life. : }

Stunning photos!

*sigh* such beautiful photos! So sorry I have been absent and missed your last post! How did the party go? How hot are you playing in outside? We are in the mid nineties now everyday. Your gardens are soooo beautiful. I'm always drooling over everything you show us. I need you to help me keep mine alive... they have a tendency to get a little thirsty..... please don't hate me. Succulents have started to become my best friend, oh and I believe rosemary loves me too. :) Really enjoyed that shot of your table too... makes me want to have a cup of tea and sit for a spell. :)

I think about you often and hope that you and your neighbors are getting your lives back on track.

Enjoyed my visit, Erin. Thanks for the wonderful sunshine and blooms! :)
