I am so happy to show you (with permisson) these gorgeous images of garden gates in Carmel, California, by photographer Linda Yvonne. Check out her Carmel photoset here. She also has prints available.
While you're enjoying the tour, perhaps I'll babble on a bit...
I hope everyone had themselves a wonderful Mother's Day! Our weekend was a bit of a whirlwind. Saturday we did our usual weekly marketing extravaganza, then we zipped down to the farmer's market and crammed the back of the Explorer with flats and flats of bedding plants. Amazingly the guys tucked all those seedlings into their beds by dinnertime!
Sunday we were off early, to La Madeline for brekkies, then onward to Ikea! (what, isn't that every mother's dream destination? It is most certainly mine) I experienced excellent Mother's Day karma by finding this in the discounted section. Only the tiniest little boo boo where you'd never see it, and already assembled! Woot!
A quick trip back to the house to get a vehicle big enough to hold it, then a mad scramble to regroup for a visit with Ro's mom and the rest of the clan.
We topped off the day with a tasty supper of grilled tilapia while watching Amalie, then I had a nice long chat with Katy (who had spent the day setting up her thesis exhibit!).
They took the greatest care of me, I am a very lucky mom.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into the gardens of Carmel!
