Sunshine in the Garden...

Yesterday I got to play for almost 
the whole day in the garden.
There were chillies to harvest.
Globe artichokes to cut.
{I let this one flower first because 
it is just SO pretty!}
Hedges to clip.
Sunny spots to bask in.
Happy~face flowers to say hello to.
Beds to weed, 
especially after all the rain!
Roses to pick, to arrange in milk bottles...
and to dry with cinnamon sticks 
for pot pourri bowls. 
And in the afternoon, 
as a reward, it was just beautiful 
to stretch out by the pool...
And enjoy a moment in the autumn sun,
dining al fresco!

I hope you are enjoying a beautiful sunny 
weekend too.
