Happy Fourth of July

Musing for the day…
“It doesn’t matter so much what you do, as long as you smile when you remember it.” – Victoria Moran

Happy Fourth of July! Today was a little soggy, so we spent our time on the front porch. Tomorrow is our picnic. Everyone will bring a covered dish or favorite spirit. If we are lucky, the weather will turn fair, & we will fete on the patio – fingers crossed! I’ve cut bunches of Hydrangeas for centerpieces in blue mason jars with white shells.

We rarely get a chance to take a vacation - even a mini one - but managed a three day weekend with good friends of ours to Biltmore in Asheville, NC. It was just breath-taking. The house is like a storybook castle. Everywhere there were mountains & rolling meadows. We caught this view of the back of the house just before a thunderstorm.

I like the mirror image reflected in the lake. It has a dream-like quality because the humidity was so high!
