It was a beautiful weekend in our neck of the woods :: filled with family, food and gardening fun.
We met the kids for dinner Saturday evening at a little organic restaurant about an hour from home. And because one can accomplish quite a bit while sitting in the car for an hour, I brought my hexagons along.
After a relaxing dinner and lots of nice conversation, we shared this beautiful dessert sampler. It was the perfect way to end our meal :: not too much :: just little bites of special homemade treats. My favorite was the baklava ice cream, a vanilla base with chunks of baklava mixed in.
After dinner we strolled through town for just a bit. This restaurant's patio is so charming. It's jam-packed with plants and has a fountain too. I snapped a few photos and am dreaming of transforming my deck to achieve this feel.
Sunday was lovely too. My mom (she's the best) and I spent the morning at our local nursery. Once home, hubby and I worked on the window boxes. He prepares the soil and I plant. We make a great team if I do say so myself :)
And what better way to end the day? A glass of wine on the back patio.....
and an absolutely gorgeous sunset. A lovely weekend indeed.
