How does your garden grow?

 This past spring we had a raised bed made began growing some lovely herbs and vegetables. 

I wanted to make pesto so I planted 8 basil plants and have had fun experimenting with making pesto. 


we had dill on salmon cooked on cedar planks the other night. Yum!

 it's not doing too well. 


Parsley--though it's green it has hardly grown at all. 


Cucumbers that are trying to take over the entire garden. 

And tomato plants which are also growing like crazy.

I thought the green and white lanterns were a lovely touch.

Girls up...guys down... 

Now they're both up but Priscilla is blocking the bride. Guys and girls seem to jump differently, guys jump with straight legs while the girls bend them. 

Flower petals make kisses so much more romantic. 

Sorry, couldn't decide which kissing picture I liked best!

Maryfrances and her brothers.

Family portrait

They had a fiddler who played and called for English country dances. 

And they're off riding into the sunset... or rather at 2:30pm into the 95 degree afternoon heat. And the sign on the back says "Honk if you're in love too." And they did get honked at. :)

There is not a whole lot to say about these pictures, so I'll just let you enjoy them.

Instead of walking down the aisle, Maryfrances came out of the trees around the side to meet her groom.

Love this one.
