Wedding Flowers

Front (last week)

Back (last week)

Wreaths (today), and I am still trying to figure out why they wanted blue and white ribbons on something that is white and pink. I worked both last weekend (for Mel) and this one (for English Garden); two weddings last week and seven (count 'em) seven this weekend. Makes me tired to think about having that many - but it was fun!

We went out to dinner tonight with our next-door neighbors, to our favorite Italian place. I had farfalle alla Nina (the chef and owner) with bowtie pasta, scallops and shrimp and a really tasty sauce - very buttery - of course. Since I  had a plate of Thai food about 2pm, I didn't want an appetizer or salad and wonder of wonders - I didn't eat any dessert, although mr. kenju's tiramisu surely looked good. We ran into my very good friend Pam, with her husband and their next-door neighbors. It must have been the weekend for getting together with neighbors....

Monday night, some of the women in my neighborhood are going to Wine and Design. I am really looking forward to it. I have done a few drawings, but I haven't had a paintbrush in my hand for about 33 years. We have chosen to do a beach scene and it could get interesting. If mine turns out well, I'll post it.

We also ate out last night and now I have to cook lunch (family guests) when all I feel like is some fruit.
The flowers are lovely - as usual.

Your fingers must be aching after all those wedding arrangements! I think the one you posted is very beautiful.

You certainly have a wide choice of food when you go out! I suppose if we actually lived in Manchester we would too, but here it tends to be good ol' English!!

I have a packet of frozen prawns in my freezer that I really don't know what to do with - maybe if I made a well flavoured sauce and put them with pasta it would be OK? Mr. G always wants masses of sauce/gravy or whatever. He likes his food wet! I don't. Makes if difficult!

Seven weddings in one weekend! That must be a record, do you have welts on your cutting thumb? I certainly would. I wondered about the blue and white ribbons too, but there is no accounting for taste.

The flowers are, as always, look awesome. Sounds like life is good!! I'm so glad.

Love the wreaths on the doors even with the ribbons. Italian food is my favourite, but I often fast food joints just don't now how to cook it!

I really liked the wreaths. Guess I have no taste. You are going to need to soak your fingers after 7 weddings.

Love the wreaths. I am always jealous of your close relationships with your neighbors. Cannot wait to see the painting! Somehow I know it will be good.
