Weekend Update

It was a beautiful weekend. I could use a few more days like that. Saturday was perfect so what better way to end the day but to go to a backyard BBQ. My friend Larry was having a few friends over to celebrate 100 years. He and his partner, Barry are both 50 years old this year. What a perfect way to celebrate. (BTW their backyard is actually 10 acres.)

And it's full of gorgeous flowers, trees and plants. Iris is one of my favorite flowers.

And he has a few land creatures like this one...

And probably one of my most favorite flowers ever...the white peony.

And as the sun went down it got a little chilly outside. Someone got the fire pit going to warm things up. And then someone threw a dead pine tree on it.
Here's the proof of why Christmas trees are so dangerous....

All in all it was a great weekend. Other than my crazy niece got hit in the head with a baseball bat and ended up in the emergency room. She's fine and now has a goose egg the size of Michigan and 10 stitches in her head. Ah... the good life.

Those flowers are gorgeous! Irises and peonies are two of my favorites.

Doesn't the fire seem a bit closer to the house???
Apparently no one else was concerned with the distance?

That was the green house behind the pit. And it's at least 20 feet away from it.
