garden supper

One of my very favorite things about summer vacation is the long leisurely suppers by the pool or on a picnic table in the woods, wherever we happen to go that year. Nothing fancy, we usually order takeout or cookout on the grill. But along with some melon or strawberries and a bottle of wine, you have something special and reminiscent of those sweet summer days. Well its not quite summer, and we have no travel plans this weekend so I thought why not a loungey supper in the garden. It’s a little nicer than the paper plates we use on trips, but the same idea; casual, easy, and time slowly ticking by. Luckily, knock on wood, the bugs have not been bad this year, and Al Roker is calling for three full days of east coast sunshine.

This table and chairs set is one of my first big yard sale scores. Jeez, it must have been ten years ago by now. When did that happen? It looks as though it is just about ready for a fresh coat of white spray paint.
