About 2 months ago I planted a tiny mint plant that was about 6 inches tall by 2 inches wide in this planter. It never ceases to amaze me how it has grown crazy huge! I guess we better start making more mojitos.
When we moved into this house almost 3 years ago, I dreamed of hosting dinners on the patio. There is something so perfect about eating outside on a lovely cool evening. It took a while, but I finally had my first outdoor dinner party last night as the wonderful women from our PTA board and elementary school celebrated the end of the year. The weather was beautiful- great temperature and hardly any wind. Cody had sprayed for mosquitoes this week, so we didn't get much bug activity either which was nice. Turns out 28 can fit comfortably on the patio. I can't wait to host another outdoor dinner...though I might have to wait until fall now that the weather is heating up.
