Summer Garden Party

Yesterday afternoon, we, the Breast Cancer Support gals had our annual garden party at J’s lovely home and backyard. She hosts both the Christmas and summer parties and we sure do appreciate it. The weather was just right for us to sit outside.

As we were sitting down to eat, J lined up peanuts in the shell on the deck fence. She then proceeded to shake a plastic bag to call the birds. Well it didn’t take long before a couple of Blue Jays came by to grab the peanuts. Funny thing tho, they would pick up the peanut shells and put them down. I think they were choosing the best ones. They continued to come back over and over which made for great entertainment. J’s yard is filled with beautiful flowers and ornaments which made for a wonderful outing.

We decided to have coffee and dessert inside as the clouds moved in. IRM is an excellent dessert maker. She made a white layer cake with peaches and Grand Manier. I said it looked like it should be in Good House Keeping magazine and it tasted wonderful too.

We relaxed in the living room and chatted and laughed, what a great day.
