notre nouveau jardin.

okay i got off my slack ass and took some shots of our newly refurbished yard. that grill could make the likes of Rosie O'Donnell and Melissa Etheridge jealous. its a real lesb'en head turner. the moolah we spent on that grill, i can assure you, we NEVER woulda normally spent on any grill. its SUPER nice!!
as far as our lil buddha,... the marble table that it rests on is actually the only thing (aside from our bird bath that survived the wreck). the table belonged to C's grandma, so i think of it as a modernized antique. how that table survived the accident is beyond amazement, and now the buddha is there to remind us to breathe and relax.
the table set with the umbrella just frikkin ROCKS!! offset by our tiki torches, its very party friendly. and as far as the seemingly out of place sundial nailed to the fence gate- well. thats part of whats left of that (irreplacable) antique sun dial. we were very disheartened to see the demise of that much loved decorative item in our yard. we really loved it when we saw it in atlanta at my favorite antique store up there, and even though it was out of our price range, we knew we had to get it. so i think it being proudly displayed on the gate that enters our humble abode gently reminds us to not take anything for granted. it can all be taken away in the blink of an eye. and the okra that ya see. well, my wittle bitty thumb has begun to turn a twinge of green.
