Went To A Garden Party

Hello, Dear Ones!
Last weekend Mr. Precious and I went to a garden party.
Well, sort of...
We look forward to every June's Backyard Garden Tour on our little island.
Grab a Dr. Pepper and a cookie, sit back and relax as I share some of the gardens with you.

Well, not actually a garden, but a darling table with the cutest funkiest things poked on top that was sitting under the trees in a garden!

Don't you love this idea of the herbs and flowers growing in pallets?

Doesn't this make you smile?
This garden plot was made by some Boy Scouts and after they painted the tires, they stacked and tied them together and poked in plants. 
Makes me smile! ;)

The ladies in red.

We do have sea creatures that escape the bounding main occasionally. :)
I see this one has found a nice place to live.
Cute cute!

This is an old historical home (gorgeous) and their gorgeous no grass backyard and pool. 
All plants were poked in pots!

Look at their fantastic outdoor kitchen!
Mr. Precious was jealous. poor poor thing

There were a few water lilies swimming around in the pool.

Couldn't resist this snap! 
Quack, quack! :)

Some island attitudes painted on signs.

Pretty greenness.


In the backyard of a little bitty cottage there was this little garden space and I just fell in love in with it.

Barely two feet deep garden spot that ran down the side of their privacy fence.
Look what they did with the old door!
See that little puppy bum sticking up! :)

Look at the shutter. 
I have old shutters! I could do this! :)

How charming was the bottle tree and they just propped up a few old garden tools. 
Simple and creative.

This is about the oddest looking plant I've ever seen. 
It seems little slippers are dangling from the tips of the leaves.
Maybe one of you knowledgeable gardening ones would know what this is called.

Just sweet and charming!
This little garden proves how much you can do even when you really don't have much space or grass for beds.

I can certainly tell how the little birdies love it too!

Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Garden Party ( you knew it was a have to)

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, I didn't look the same


But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

People came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
'n' over in the corner, much to my surprise
Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes wearing his disguise

But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

lot-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Played them all the old songs, thought that's why they came
No one heard the music, we didn't look the same
I said hello to "Mary Lou", she belongs to me
When I sang a song about a honky-tonk, it was time to leave

But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode
Playing guitar like a-ringin' a bell and lookin' like he should
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang, I rather drive a truck

But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself
lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
lot-in-dah-dah-dah

'n' it's all right now, learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself
