Since we left the beach sooo late the other night (see photo) and everyone (self and BV) were exhausted from all the big work from this last week, we decided to stay home on Sunday- and rest... haha.. If there is one thing Mr and Mrs Villa do not know, its rest. whats that??
Here you see Bob in the garden doing a little cleaning up. The "P" on his hat IS for perfect. Not Pirates, as when he was the coach of his boys baseball team, as everyone would suspect. He is most awesome. Notice he is doing the work as I fart around taking photos. "Honey, does Sarah, your blog girlfriend like bleeding heart?" I dunno. But she loves hosta.. Notice bob being attentive to all of my make believe girlfriends, as much as his wife..
Here is my make believe girlfriends booty from my garden. Left to right. A couple of Peony, a huge clump of Hosta in need of division, next is my very favorite Solomon Seal, and some lovely clumps of bright green Ladys Mantle (sarah, they go great with hosta. Awesome texture together..) Dont thank me, thank Bob, for I was toooo busy to really dig around much.. Someone had to be weed bucket dumper and trampoline safety patrol manager.. Plus, I already had paint under the nails, so there wasnt any room for DIRT, too..SHEESH!!! Anyway, Bob is taking the box of florabunda to the post office with him today Sarah, so in 3 to 5 days..expect a parcel of dirt from the Villas!! With our love..
Then, because its my dear and most excellent Moms Birthday, today--I came in and made one of these for her party tonight. At 5:30 18 guests, including the Royal Highness herself will enter through the doors of the Villa home for a taco fest. (I know, not very birthday-ish) BUT I wanted my brother and sister to help me, so this is what we came up with..It will be a fun evening celebrating the Matriarch of our family..
Heres the ganached chocolate heaven.. HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY TO MY MOTHER.. I LOVE YOU!!!
