Friends, Food & Fun!~ Part 1

On Sunday my friend Maria & I took a little drive to Brookfield MA  see our friends at the Walker Homestead.  This was  day 2  of their “Garden Party. ” The sun was shinning, the birds were chirping and we were smiling!  That sounded a bit corny but it was all true.It was a gorgeous day to be out and about! 

I’ll show you some of the highlights from our day, I did go a wee bit over the top with photographs, but I’m a very visual person and I see life in pictures. ☺

I love to photograph colored bottles in the light. The blue of these bottles are so vibrant!
