Outdoor Wednesday: Thanks to Susan of "A Southern Day Dreamer for hosting Outdoor Wednesday! In May of 2006 my mother, Myra, (73 at the time) decided to have an Iris Bulb sale to raise funds for an orphanage to be built in Peru. My sister & I visited that week and helped her during the uprooting, digging, and dragging the lil ole Iris Bulbs from her garden into the car trunks of all that drove many miles to purchase. The pic below is outside amongst the Iris Garden...(she raised over $1,000 selling the roots for $1 & $2 ea.) I had determined prior to our 10 hr. drive to PA that I'd load up tea cups, linens, and my silver teapot & wooden tray so we could have a tea party while there. I never imagined on the second day of the sale that I'd spontaneously decide to have the tea party in the Iris Garden, dirty and all. We called a few of her friends and sitting under the apple trees and there by her Iris Garden, we "par-tea'd with scones and all"! Afterwards, I had to snap a few staged shots for the teapot...I couldn't pass the scenery up for that type of backdrop!
