Lunch with a Friend in Paradise
Yesterday I was invited to Mina's home in North Amherst. When I pulled into her driveway I knew that it was going to be a special day. Gardens everywhere. Flowers, vegetables, bird feeders, fountains. The view was spectacular. The weather was perfect. 68 degrees with a cool breeze. We drank some wine, enjoyed crab cakes, sliced tomatoes with fresh basil, shrimp, and olives. Chips and dip from Whole Foods. Yummy! We talked. Laughed. The afternoon flew by. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon. The photo was inspired by the white glass vase and fresh flowers from her garden. I added my antique MOP buttons, a red bird, some bird eggs, music and a hand-written envelope. It was my thank you card to Mina.
