Friday we spent working in the yard, getting things ready for the Charleston Farmers Market. I took most of the day but like I said, the weather was just perfect so we didn’t mind having to work outside all day. Working in the garden never feels much like work to me anyway. The day ended with a surprise visit by my daughter.
Saturday was the first day at the Charleston Farmers Market in Marion Square. Obviously a lot of people were waiting for it to open because the crowd was great. At several points during the day, there were so many people that you had to push your way through to get where you were going. I heard that part of that was due to a cruise ship being in port which may have been the case since there were a lot of visitors down there. I met several people from China and also a woman from Croatia. I love talking with people from faraway places. Saturday ended with a birthday party down at the Winery and I had my share of the BBQ.
What can I say about Sunday? Easter Sunday is always special and ours was no exception. We talked about getting up really early and going to a Sunrise Service but everyone was tired so we opted to sleep in and rest up a bit. Instead of having a big lunch, we decided to have a big breakfast instead. Here was our menu;
Scrambled eggs, Country ham, home fries, grits, biscuits and Orange Juice. I can cook can’t I.
That pretty much held us off until dinner. Around 3 we headed to my BIL’s house for a big family dinner. There was a crowd there as well but it was very quiet and everyone had a great time. I think I gained 10 lbs on Sunday. Now it is diet time again and what better time to start anew than Easter. I will leave you with some pictures that I took in our garden on Sunday. I hope you enjoy them;
This is Tigger Tiger guarding the cooler.
This is a Louisiana Iris. I don't remember where we got these but we have lots of them.
This is one of my grape vines. Future source of wine maybe?
This is the best this Azalea has ever looked so I had to take a photo.
Do you think we have enough daylilies?
One of my wife's roses.
This is a Cherokee Rose.
Goldie in our fish pond. She has friends but they are being shy.
I posted this Iris before but it goes with the others so I posted it again.
This Iris was in with the Louisiana Iris' but it obviously isn't the same.
See the difference.
This is our purple bearded Iris. It didn't want to open fully for me.
This is called a walking Iris. We like to put them in hanging baskets.
That about wraps up the photos for the day. I hope you enjoyed them.
Have a great week,
