I've decided to make sure we eat al fresco as many times as posible before we loose the summer altogether. We just don't seem to have spent that much time in the garden this year and so today I decided to make our garden into a hidden oasis :-) for when Steve gets home tonight!
Aiming to stay out there for most of the evening and enjoy each others company, the garden/wildlife/food and wine
Steve wanted spaghetti tonight so I picked up some beautiful, freshly baked, tomato and parmesan bread from Blanchards Cafe this morning to go with it- if you live near Sleaford then my advice to you is to try it - gorgeous! Had to take the picture quickly - it was still warm from the oven and now it's not as "complete" as it was!
I couldnt resist a small piece with pesto on for lunch!
Laid the garden table with a vintage linen table cloth, some pretty red and white crockery and picked some flowers from the garden to put in the old ironstone jug that I "thrifted". Put some more candlesticks out, ready for when the sun goes down at about 8. ..
Oh... and I added some crystal chandelier droplets to the plant pots - these will catch the light and sparkle when the candles are lit this evening.
Steve's chilling swing is all ready for his return from work and
a cold beer in the fridge -
perfect after a hard days work!
Gertie's pinched my comfy seat - I dont have the heart to move her -
sewing will have to wait until she moves on
