Stormy Skies Ahead

Here are some photos I took of the sky and yard last weekend...Its supposed to rain like crazy tonight and tomorrow.
The lemon trees are so full I cant seen to use them fast enough!

Here is the front yard...we are going to have a garden party this year here...I cant wait!

Succulents and lantana in bloom...this is one side of our fence in the front...our yard is pretty wild because we have like .05% of it hardscaped if that. Which means I have the most awesome garden boots...i will take a picture of them sometime... Have a nice weekend!

I was over at Duet Weddings and found this amazingly beautiful wedding on their blog. The post is called Celebrations of Spring.

How I wish I could get married justify that kind of budget on a party! I will have to buy a lottery ticket...maybe I will get lucky!

So for now I will just have to fantasize! Check out the all the photos and the stories. Their blog is filled with lovely parties!

I know I talk a lot about Bornay...they are in Spain...there are so many florists out there that have beautiful sights and sites...Saipua for example...but there is just something about Bornay that speaks to me...I asked my husband if I could run away to Spain for the summer so I could work for Bornay... of course I would have to beg them to hire me I could process the flowers and that would be good enough for me...that way I could watch the magic happen!...Here is their sea carpet...lovely and colorful for a gloomy day here.
