Catching up a little bit... at the end of May into the beginning of June we had the fun job of setting up a booth at The Devon Horse Show and Country Fair. I grew up in Devon, and the Horse Show has always been one of my favorite events, so we were very excited to participate for a second year.
We had lots of garden inspired gifts, plants, planters, artwork, jewelry and many other goodies

A wonderful, exhausting but enjoyable week and a half at the horse show, along with some lovely weddings, prom flowers and graduation bouquets at the shop. Phew, we survived! Thanks to all my fabulous helpers.
And finally, that week, the climbing rose by our back door actually bloomed!
I was barely home to see it (mostly just in the dark when I finally crawled home at night) but I was so thrilled. After chopping it to the ground in frustration a year or two ago, I belatedly figured out that it was a climber, not just a gnarly attack bush lurking by the back door, and drawing blood every time I passed by. Poor thing, it just wanted to grow! Now it is so beautiful, a lovely soft blush color, and I'm off to buy another trellis, I want to plant another one on the other side of the door!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
