But when I went to her house to celebrate her birthday – which also happens to be the 4th of July – she had really outdone herself in and around her back patio.
It was all decked out for our family get-together, including two of the cutest little yellow Adirondack chairs I’ve ever seen, perfect for my nieces.
She hung red, white and blue bunting from the little fence that separates the patio from the rest of the yard.
What I like best, though, is the way her containers are just absolutely overflowing with flowers. They are beautiful!
We’re not planning to actually eat our birthday/4th of July dinner out on the patio.
Mom has a long table decked out inside the house for that. But you can bet that – assuming it doesn’t rain – lots of our hanging out will take place out here.
Amazingly, Mom doesn’t think her gardens looks that pretty. I think she’s nuts and want her to come do my gardens, which she declined!
Happy Birthday Mom!
