Hi Pat, I am having a quiet day today at least for the moment. Catching up with all the comments on my posts is big but not like yours. I too love too follow your posts Pat. Your blog is always wonderful and full of awesome photos. these last two are no exception. Queen Anne's lace grows everywhere around here. I LOVE the lacy look with all it's white beauty. A real compliment to your hydrangeas and table top setting. the chargers are unusual and so pretty. I would love to go on some shopping trips with you. smile. You do find the loveliest things.

The mosaic is also a wonder in photos. I know you LOVE your camera. I do too. Bill just bought the Rebel T2I. He is loving it. Me too, if he will let me get my hands on it. LOL.

I will be happy to see the photos from your day trip. The teaser is a beauty.

Hugs, Jeanne

Shelia said...

Morning, Dear Pat! Oh, look at that floral arrangement! I love it! The hydrangeas are so lovely! Are those Queen Ann's Lace? Your table is so pretty. The chargers are outstanding! You always make such prettiness here! I love you and you know I'm your biggest fan! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh my, this is so lovely. The flowers are stunning. I love all of your beautiful china too. The leaf bowls and the chargers are so exquisite. Beautiful tablescape. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Fabulous. Hugs, Marty

Lilia N Designs said...

Such a lovely arrangement! I love the little blue birds. What are they made of?

Southerncook said...

Beautiful post, Pat. I especially love your arrangement. I do a lot of flower arrangements and I liked your use of hosta's. I planted this year for the first time some Queen Anne's Lace and our heat and humidity have already gotten to it. Next year I will plant more than one plant. I liked it mixed with the Hydrangeas. Such a simple arrangement but those are always the lovliest.

Your photos are all so pretty. I love the hydrangea and is it Queen Anne's Lace? Your table setting is so nice and the special effects on the photos make them look very interesting.

Delightful combo ... stunning photos! I've certainly enjoyed my visit and now, as a follower, will be reminded to return.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I always loved Queen Anne's Lace! As a child I used them for "umbrella's!" Enjoyed seeing them again, it's been a long time since I've seen them!

Love the tablescape!


Christie said...

I LOVE your flowers! Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers! My children and I will have a 'roadside' flower trip, where we pick all kinds of wild flowers and mix them in with some flowers from our yard. The Queen Anne's Lace is abundant around here and I just love it with your hydrangeas! See my children's flowers at Make sure you scroll down!

I have to tell take BEAUTIFUL pictures...absolutely gorgeous! Stunning!

Saphron said...

Pat, your photography really inspires me. We use different subjects, but still the quality you achieve spurs me on to always do better.

I just got back from North Carolina and there are hydrangeas everywhere there. People grow them in their gardens. As you know - you just don't see that in STL!

Kim said...

So pretty Pat - you certainly have the touch. I am in awe!

Pamela said...

WR and I have agreed to disagree on Hydrangeas.

I love them, but he refuses to plant any. So, I'll enjoy yours.
