Hello, and thank you for stopping by!
I have lots of pictures to share this Tablescape Thursday, so thank you for your patience if they take a moment to load.
Also... It is not too late to enter Once Upon a Plate's current Give Away.
See sidebar (or click HERE) for details.
Fall is officially just around the corner ~ our days remain warm; 70's to 80's. Just perfect for sipping a cool drink, having a little sweet nibble and visiting on one of the garden pathways.
This is actually an elevated wooden path, it is 'hugged' on each side by mature Douglas Fir trees, fern, rhododendrons, azaleas, columbine and fragrant lilies (all have completed their bloom cycle for this year, so things look a little ragged but it is very cool and comfortable in this spot.)
Memories linger here ...
