We celebrated the Banty Hen's 3rd birthday Saturday. She thinks she is a princess, and she loves pink. So it only stands to reason that she had a pink princess cake. Opening presents was a chore since what she really wanted to do was play on the slip n slide her mother bought. All the kiddos enjoyed sliding and playing in the water.
I didn't get a picture of her in her new dress, since she was having none of trying anything on to show everyone. There just wasn't time. I have two more of these beauties to make. The ones I'm making for the older girls are also sundresses, but they also have a collar on them. Maybe before summer, I'll get a picture of all three in their colorful dresses.
Here are a couple of pictures of my lace cap hydrangeas. They have been loaded with blooms this year, but I have two bushes on either side that are trying to smother this one out. They are Burning Bushes, and are huge. I asked my son to either cut them back to the base, or pull them out. I'll probably go home one afternoon and they'll be gone. But whatever is easiest for him is what I perfer. He's busy, but manages to work things in for me.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I know I did. I also picked green beans out of our garden. I got almost 4 lbs, and after sharing part of them with my brother who has done all the work, I snapped, washed and cooked them almost done last night.
I'm getting ready for company from Tuesday night until Thursday morning, and am excited about seeing my friend.
