Mother's Day Extraordinaire

"Say cheese!" And, we did...over there in that photo to the right. Nana/Momma/Edith got all dressed up in her gorgeous new capelet/shawl that Missy M gave her for Mother's Day; I applied my (much-hinted for) new makeup from her; and then we headed off to enjoy a lovely Brunch and the Annual Gardeners' Fair at Historic Locust Grove. [Read more about the Fair at the Courier-Journal's site.] Just before hopping in his new car, we handed a camera to Mr. T so that he could capture our moment.

It was a fabulous day from start to finish! The brunch was catered by Bristol Catering and featured Fresh Fruit, a Spinach and Sun-dried Tomato Frittata, Kentucky Hot Brown, Three-Cheese Grits, New Parsleyed Potatoes, and Biscuits...followed by quite a tasty dessert selection. [Of course, Missy M had difficulty in finding a favorite in that selection, but she was a trooper nonetheless.]

Then, we strolled off our calories with a walk through the on-site fair. There were vendors offering flowers, herbs, perennials, shade plants, planters, tools, gardening accessories, wrought iron sculptures, water gardens, and unique yard furniture. We came away with a neat handmade, hand-painted tile-top side table, a deep purple "Black Knight" Buddleia (butterfly bush), an Endless Summer Hydrangea, a patio tomato (with a couple of tiny tomatoes), and some herbs that Missy M had been searching for...not to mention at least 10 ideas for projects. The sun was out...there wasn't a cloud in the sky...and since we took the wheelchair, N/M/E got to see all the wares and wonders, too. We couldn't have scripted a better Mother's Day!

Back at the ranch, following a nice nap, we pitched in to help Mr. T finish mulching the front flowerbeds. He'd already done the majority of the work, but there were a couple of items we could do before the early evening showers arrived.

Now, that's how a lovely Spring Sunday should go...
