We're having a family reunion Saturday for my mother's family. There are only three of the original 11 brothers and sisters living. My mother and one brother live near here and the remaining sister lives in Illinois. Of course there are cousins living all over the United States, but we do expect about 85 people, maybe more. The reunion will be held at my church, which is the church the original 11 children attended while growing up.
My sister and I are in charge of setting up tables and decorating, etc. Our plan was to use fresh cut flowers from my yard. To give the tables an old fashioned feel, we planned to put the flowers in Mason Jars and to tie raffia around them.
I'm feeling a little worried about the flowers in my yard being enough for this purpose. If we had a couple more weeks, there'd be plenty I think. And to top it all off last night we had wind and rain which blew my Zinnias over!
Anyway here are some of the flowers that I'll be working with. My sister will buy greenery to go with them. She's the flower arranger, not me! I'm the grower...
The Day Lillies are probably too big, but I have plenty!
