Garden Shower

boxofrox(z8 PNW)July 15, 2012

We hosted a garden baby shower for our lovely princess of a niece yesterday. Here are some pics as we set up and some samples of what was in bloom. My lovely bride made most of the decorations and of course, I did the garden part :-) The swing was set up for the princess to sit on while she opened her gifts. The weather was absolutely splendid and a good time was had by ALL !!!

Ridiculous. You've got such a beautiful garden! I never get tired of seeing it. And it looks like you set up for a very nice party!

What a Princess Aurora party this is for the Princess Niece!!!! straight from a Disney tale! Just beeeee-ooooo-tiful! Lyda, Westerland and the new red roses make a great STARE-WELL along the bannisters, the Sunset Celebrations beautiful peaches are captivating and the Phlox's really threw in their pinks and blues for Baby Colors! Congrats on being a Grand-Uncle for the NEW BABY BOY!!!! Now how evident is this, lol!

It's almost like the roses are trying to float along, balloonlike in rising colors! Just so very splendid Boxo.

I am so sorry I am late to the Party.... There was nothing nice in my garden, everything either roasted to a crisp or still encased in closed sepals. This was the best I could manage for your niece sigh....

and boy does my dreadful rose stick out like a sore thumb compared to your beauties. I just love that AD. He is the Cake and outdoes even that wonderful cake laid out on that table.

Please send your niece my love and Little Eluane's puppy kisses (2nd photo) because she looooooves babies. Her tail will always wag and she immediately lies down before the baby to be as gentle as she can. From Long-Ago Baby E to the New Baby-to-B, lol!

Oh, my goodness....your garden is outstanding! I am speechless!!! I can`t imagine the joy I would feel if this were my shower. The setting is lovely. I admire your hydrangeas so. Our heat here has burned mine beyond words. Your roses are so fresh...ours small and fried. Thanks for sharing this with all of us. Lesley
