A Busy Weekend in May

On Saturday and Sunday Morning we attended the local Garden Tour. We took lots of pictures and now have to remember what we were liking about that particular garden.
This garden concept may be doable for us with small developed areas within a natural woodland setting. Of course we loved this huge garden with a surprise around every corner.

I think the boccie ball court is a possibility to replace the old badminton court at the bottom of the yard.
We have put in a few plants in the front. But more work in the front has to be done after the tree man pollards the two horrible trees in the yard. William will then get rid of the high stumps and plant something nicer.
Saturday evening was the Annual Democrats Jefferson/Jackson fundraiser dinner. I baked a pecan pie for the dessert run. I think all had a good time and a good deal of money was raised.
Sunday we had an early soul food dinner at the Hornings with a lovely black eye pea soup. I brought corn bread made with the stone ground corn meal I bought in the Great Smokies and another pecan pie. After dinner we all raced to downtown Grass Valley to attend the tribute to Aretha Franklin at the Center for the Arts. A great time was had by all.

Lovely pictures and a bocce court is a great idea! Your hair looks very cute, btw. Lots of pecan pies lately, you must be gaining a good deal of expertise (:
