Lanterns and Pots at night
I decided to take advantage of the summer weather and have a family gathering, dinner on the terrace. My eldest son was working so he was the only one missing of our 6 children. My youngest Conor wanted to know what was the occasion but it was really just to spend time sitting down eating good food in wonderful surroundings with family and Alan - husband to be and Paula - Conor's girl making us a total of 9.
It was an ever changing picture with ducks, moorhens and birds all making appearances and the scents from the flowers drifting in the summer breeze.It was well on into the summer night when we finished up. It's something we need to do more often take time out in our busy lives, with kids going their own way now that they're all adults except for Conor but that times approaching fast.
Just like gardening it's great to see them grow and develop everyone different.
