in the wild

While we were in Maine my parents held a lobster bake so that the gentleman and I could celebrate our marriage with family and friends in true New England style. We were tasked with gathering wild flowers for the centerpieces (such an awful job, right?), and so trotted off with baskets in hand. Besides masses of the ubiquitous Queen Anne's Lace, we managed to scrounge up some pink clover, yarrow, mallow, early golden rod, and wild sweet peas (my very favorite discovery) !! Along the way we snacked on wild blueberries as the bugs snacked on us.

Ahhhh, fleurs. . . .

Happy tuesday all!

Hardest invitation of the summer to turn down :-( Just plain couldn't get away.

I remember picking wild sweet peas as a child---they grew on the rocks near our summer place at the Neck.

Happy summer---it's flying by, and glad you got to Maine again.

Courtney ~ well, no styling at all! That's just they way they all landed in the bucket!

DED ~ you were sorely missed, but I do know how busy summer is for you. We'll just have to have another round of drinks Chez Emerson Antiques.
