The Garden Party

{Facebook: everyone has been having an unspeakably exciting time. what have you been up to?}

It's too much pressure, really.

Today I went to Julian's grandfather's garden party. We had fine weather, abundant food/drink, and shaded pavilions surrounded by greenery. I accidentally landed in the (secretive and unexpected) fish-pond. (to everyone's immense amusement).

“Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing. ” 

- Jerome K. Jerome, Three Men in a Boat

(yes, that is a mountain of wurst)

... and I adore these party lights.
