June photo a day & Seed Kitchen & Bar

Check out Fat Mum Slim’s Photo a day challenge! #photoadayjune
Day 10} Best bit of your weekend~I would have to say I had a great weekend last weekend overall. It’s been 6 months {can’t believe that! time flies!} and it still feels weird for me to have the weekend off after 6 years of not really having a free Saturday. So my mum and I climbed in the car and headed to the Roswell Lavender Festival at Barrington Hall. It was fun and the gardens were so pretty! So glad we went. We did a little shopping and had a nice dinner on a outdoor patio.


Day 11} Door~One of my favorite pictures. Walking around San Juan Bautista a few years ago I spied this beautiful door.


Day 12} From a low angle~ Remade the bed and put out a blanket and catnip toy for Miss Willow. She decided she would much rather play the princess and the pea. Willow loves Pillows!

Dinner @ Seed Kitchen & Bar

After our adventures Saturday we were quite famished and our friends recommended Seed Kitchen & Bar.  We were not disappointed! We sat on the patio and enjoyed the great weather and wine.


Love the potted plants! So colorful.



I had a major flash back moment checking out the cocktail menu! Memories of summers past in Chile and England come to mind. Pisco & Pimm’s


Jane enjoyed dinner and drinks at Seed!


Squash blossoms. They were quite tasty.


After dinner we took a trip down memory lane at TCBY. It’s really too bad there aren’t more of them in Georgia. Does anyone know of a great frozen yogurt shop with watermelon flavored yogurt or sorbet?

What is everyone doing this weekend for dad’s day? Tomorrow shopping and birthday/father’s day dinner at EccoSmile

Have a bright day!

I can’t believe it’s June already!! 2012 is really flying by.

We toured gardens, went shopping, ate a yummy dinner on a patio, and had a very relaxing and enjoyable day. Check it out! {Jane came too!}

2nd Annual Roswell Lavender Festival @ Barrington Hall
Mom, Jane, and I made the trip out to Roswell for the Lavender Festival yesterday! We are planning on redoing our boxwood garden borders in lavender and wanted to get some expert advice on what variety to plant..and have some fun while were at it!


Donning my lavender shoes for the festival.

The ice house. Part bath house, part food storage and preparation station.

Beautiful ribbons for sale by Grosgrain Annie’s Ribbonemporium



Jane Loves Ribbon! She can’t decide what color should don her next hat.



Cluck Cluck!


The gardens are so beautiful! Boxwood, Salvia, Lavender, Roses, and much more.







These climbing roses are so beautiful! Does anyone know what variety the are? Look at the size of this bunch of blooms growing on the vine. It looks like a bouquet!




Tasting some of the lavender treats. Key Lime Lavender Parfait. It was delish!




Making paper flowers. Jane and I created a lovely pink bloom. Thanks to my friend Ginny at Barrington Hall for helping this big kid out!


Butterfly garden! More great ideas for Gap in the Hedge.

Who else went to the Lavender Festival this weekend? What fun things did you see/buy/do? Do tell!
Have a bright day!
