If you are ever invited to a garden party at our house, don’t come in a dress with a pretty bonnet.  Instead, put on your jeans, get a sun hat and bring a rake!  Here are some shots of our garden party, Black Forst style.  Everybody participated, down to the four-year-old.

It was a productive day which was topped off with hamburgers on the grill, a hail storm and peach cobbler–in that order!

God is good!
