A Wedding and a Birthday Party!

      This past weekend, we went to Randy's brother's wedding! It was a very nice wedding held at their home. The bride was so pretty! She held photos of her Dad who passed away years ago, instead of a bouquet. I thought that was a nice sentiment. We enjoyed barbecue pork and chicken the groom cooked. They even have a small garden in their backyard! I should have gotten some photos of those big, green tomatoes! There were lots of family members we enjoyed spending time with, as making a few new friends. One couple fascinated me because the man was 91 and looked about late seventies! I missed them dancing but Randy said it was great! I'm sharing some wedding photos here since I'm having a hard time sending them via email. If you have any advice how to do that, please share.

      The next day, we went to Yasmine's fifth birthday. I can't believe she's five already! The weather was overcast so it was quite humid! The sun shone too, so lots of sunburns that day! The reason for the sunburns is because we pushed the kids in swings a lot! But we endured since it will be August before we get to spend time with Yasmine and Layla! I miss them already as they are in Morocco! I'm sure they are having a great time with their family there!

      The garden is coming in a handful of cucumbers, green beans, and raspberries at a time! Before I know it, I'll have enough cucumbers to pickle! That is if I quit eating them. I love them! The squash isn't quite big enough to harvest but when it is, there should be quite a lot! I hope I haven't found out too late about DE being good to deter squash borers! The vine looks kind of yellow at the ground. I bought some today and when I finish writing, I'm putting the Diatomaceous earth on the base of the vine. Every year I loose squash plants no matter where I plant them! Lets hope this works!

      The weather has been quite hot and humid with a thunderstorm almost daily! The winds gusted up enough to cause a walnut tree to fall on the goat girl's fence. I didn't even know it had happened as there wasn't any sound. They must not have known it either cause they didn't escape. Kind of scary to have damaging winds and not even hear them! Everything else is o.k. 

      I'm loving this time of year with everything growing and producing! I hope ya'lls gardens are growing nicely! Have a nice day! Blessings from Bama!

The cake was so pretty and delicious too!

  1. Sounds like a nice wedding. I like the idea of her dad's picture - how sweet. My garden is growing as well, no pictures yet, still too small to make mention of on the blog, maybe next week. Have a great weekend.

    1. It was! almost wished we could do it again this weekend! Glad your garden is doing well! Thanks! You too Jacky!

  2. Looks like a very nice wedding. I myself like a real casual wedding where everyone can have fun. Your garden seems like it is going to be great this year. I hope someday to live where I have a sunny yard and can grow things better :(

    1. Hi Becky! We had a great time! Fun, food, and fellowship with the family! I'm getting so much enjoyment just harvesting green beans, zucchini, and cucumbers! Yes, I pray that will happen for ya'll soon! Blessings from Bama!

  3. Agree with Becky that it looks like a very nice wedding with loved ones gathered about. Beautiful cake! And your garden does seem to be producing well for you, so early!, this season!!! Your dayliles are so pretty.

    1. Hi Lisa! Thank you! I'm so happy about the garden this year! I'm finally getting enough cucumbers to make pickles. That's always been my goal! And to have enough tomatoes of my own to can! We'll see about the tomatoes! Thanks for stopping by! Blessings!

  4. Hi Felecia, Lucky you to be getting that yummy stuff out of your garden already. My cukes don't like like they are even growing. Beautiful wedding cake and sounds like a lovely wedding. Like that pink daylily too! Nancy

    1. Hi Nancy! Sorry I've been sooo busy; just now getting a chance to check my blog! Maybe the cucumbers will make it! Mine have done great! Thank you! Blessings!
