Tree Peony

Two weekends ago our town had a Garden Tour and Antique Car Show. It was a busy weekend with a wedding at the restaurant and prepping to go to Chattanooga, I didn't have time to enjoy much of it. Our yard was featured on the tour so I tried to get everything in the ground and looking good. One new member to the garden was a Tree Peony that I purchased at Groff's this year. I hoped it would still be blooming during the tour, but some bad winds blew off the big, beautiful petals. They are just so gorgeous!

Check out Jeffrey's post about the tour here.

Spoiled Rotten in Chattanooga

Last week I went to Chattanooga to surprise my mom. We had a very nice time visiting all of our favorite spots and gardening. The visit would not be complete without spoiling my nephew, Landen and niece, Aislyn.

I'm sure my mom and Annette will be cursing me the next time they have to go to the grocery store with the children.

Mother's Day

For those of you who don't know the restaurant may not realize that Mother's Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants. We had sat 540 guests yesterday. It was a lot of preparation, but our staff did a tremendous job. I was very proud of them. The day started out a little hectic when I called Home Depot to order a patio heater. They told me no problem and I told them one of my staff would be by to pick it's my credit card info, etc....THEN the store manager told me that they would not accept payment over the phone. How was I supposed to slip away for a few minutes to buy a heater? So Lowes came through. My staff picked it up and put it together. It was a little chilly and I wanted to make the guests that had to sit on the patio warmer and this would do the trick. The assembly started around 10:30am and we didn't get it properly working until 5pm! Ohh well...we have it now and I am sure it will come in handy on cool nights in the spring and winter.

To my MOM: Happy Mother's Day!

I spent most of this cold and rainy Monday in bed...resting!
