Over the past week, we've had our annual writing group end-of-session garden party at a friend's lovely home. It's always an enjoyable occasion as we all bring different types of food for the buffet lunch and then socialise in the sunny garden, or indoors if it's typical Scottish weather. This year, the sun shone off and on so it was a 'real' garden party.
I usually take the photos for the writing group blog but somehow manage to get into one of them! My friend's garden is absolutely delightful, with an abundance of flowers and plants and a most enticing swing seat in a shaded corner in the lower area of the garden. As you can imagine, this day is a highlight of our writing group year when we can lay the pens and computers aside and enjoy chatting to each other over an alfresco lunch.
It was my gorgeous wee granddaughter's fourth birthday last week and I don't know where the time has gone. Although I take lots of photos of her, we don't post any online now as her parents are teachers and they tend to stay away from social media. We had great fun out on the decking for a while - we have to grab the sun when it appears. Then she showed me her sweet little fairy garden.
As well as having a few small items to amuse the fairies, they've planted herbs and flower seeds in it and a sun flower seed just behind it. Vikki bought her two beautiful little fairy doors which have still to be added. Now, my granddaughter waits in hope for the fairies!
Hope everyone is having a little sun now and then where you are.
