The Garden and Girls Lunch

Things are finally cooling down a bit here and we are having the most fabulous weather.  Highs in the 80's and lows in the 60's with zero humidity.  Now how perfect is that.  Time to get things cleaned up and ready for our fall and winter garden.  This is when we can grow all that yummy lettuce, onions, peppers and tons of other things.

Some of our flowers are really loving this weather too.

 Love this pretty color and so pretty on the table.

 Hubby cleaning up the garden area and repotting a few things.  Love to see a man working.

Plus this is the most fabulous weather to visit with friends.  Cindy ( Applestone Cottage ) is here from Wisconsin, so of course it meant a get-together and the weather is perfect.

I love it when blogging buddies get together and visit.  We all talk non-stop.  So fun.

      Left to right - Linda @ Linda Thompson - Ceekay @ Thinkin'of Home - Cindy @ Applestone Cottage and Jamie @ Mimi's Corner.  Such precious friends, I love getting together with them.  Lunch at a fabulous place called The Farm.  The food was incredible.

  13. Hi Marty,
    I just got back home about an hour ago. It was so very nice seeing you and the other gals. My only regret is that we didn't get to talk even more. Thanks so much for driving over that far. Next time we can find something closer to you.
    Big Hugs girlfriend, can't wait until next time!

  18. Hi Marty,
    How wonderful that you are able to get together face to face with your blogging buddies! I have been blogging for a few months now and found out how friendly bloggers are. Your plants are look beautiful and it looks like your hubby is enjoying himself .

  19. Your garden is looking lovely, Marty! I love when that humidity disappears. It's been great here when it has been in the low 70's but there is no humidity. I could live with that all year! Looks like you had a fun time with the girls!

  27. Thanks for commenting on my blog! I'll be back later to link up. I just adore the little hummingbird metal cut out in your first photo. I have a butterfly but it's more 3D than the bird. I think I like your bird better! :)

  28. Nothing better than lunch with good friends and a handsome man doing your bidding! LOL!



  29. It's just so great to see the faces of folks I have seen around the different blogs. I am missing blogging SO much and wish I could fix the problem. I hate to walk away but I cannot figure it out. What a great picture, Marty.
