First of all, my sympathies to AZ in Phoenix, who had to live through a 117 degree day yesterday! I hope I never experience temperatures anywhere near that!!
This year I did not decorate the deck as I usually do with pillows, quilts, rugs, etc. If I ever have a leisurely weekend home, I may still get a chance to do it. Here is what the undecorated deck looked like at 8:00p.m. on August 8, 2012:
This is a closer view of the Tropicanna flower that I showed you yesterday.
I always enjoy the pink 'Park Princess' dahlias.
This framed planter has really filled out.
This is probably about as good as the planted crates will get this year. I expected the top to have a crown of white calla lilies, but that did not happen.
Only one white calla lily bloomed and it came out at an angle instead of on top.
I hear the most lovely sound outside --raindrops hitting the windows. It's still dark, so I can't tell how much it's rained, but anything is appreciated.
Have to get ready for work now. I have another full day. The Food & Beverage Director and I will be meeting with the bride of our next wedding. It's the most unusual (and expensive) wedding we have done --all individual food station set ups--and we want to make sure to get it right! I am sure it will go off beautifully, but it's always a bit stressful until it's over.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
