Can you stop by today for a glass of lemonade in the garden?
Lemonade is an American drink that is really refreshing in the summer sun. It is easy to make, so for those of you who have never tried it, here is how I make mine. Squeeze the juice of one lemon and pour into a half liter carafe.
Sweeten as desired. I use only one spoonful of sugar as we like ours to be sour. For us, it is a great taste when you feel hot in summer.
Just swirl the juice and sugar together to mix.
Now fill the carafe with ice cold water.
It is ready to serve. Try serving it in a wine glass to give yourself a spoiled feeling this summer.
Here is an empty chair waiting for you. I enjoy sitting here looking at 'our ladies' as we call our newly planted Annabelle's (hydrangea) which line the two sides of the pergola. I wanted to create an illusion of more depth to the garden using these and the mirror at the end of the garden. Even though the mirror is hidden in the shadow of the plants in this photo, it has really worked well. It is fun seeing it from the living room while we sit indoors also.
Aren't Annabelle's beautiful! And we have more butterflies this year. I caught this one as I just stepped out into the garden to take some photos. He stopped by to say hello like a garden fairy.
