July 15th I had a garden party with some friends to show off the lovely garden that my dear and talented friend, Lisa N., had created for my enjoyment. She is an amazing landscaper. We all had a good time chatting, exploring, playing games, and watching butterflies and hummingbirds.
The food was good, too!
Lisa is the one wearing the baseball cap.  Thank you, Lisa!
I had set up a "photo booth" area with props and signs and almost forgot about it. I almost forgot to take photos altogether! So some of the party attendees had come and gone before I remembered and they did not get photographed!  Those who did were so kind to give in to my whim and pose for me (except for MJ's hubby).  Here are the photos of my fun friends who cooperated with this old lady!
One of my friends, Beth, then took shots of me doing the hokey pokey!
I also wore a tiny hat for a pose!
Can you tell that I enjoyed my party?
