Dinner with the MacDonalds

Finally with the house and yard in some sort of order we are making an effort to have our new-found friends over for dinner. This past Friday evening Mary and John MacDonald, folks we met while visiting San Clemente back in May came over for dinner.  They have the most beautiful garden spot in all of Clemente. Both of them spend hours with every little detail of their patio garden from the placement of the tea roses to the addition of a bird bath for their feathered friends. So when they showed up at our gate bearing gifts of plant cuttings we were most appreciative.

A lovely time with lovely people.

It was great fun enjoying our garden with this special couple. If you want to read about their adventures living in Ecuador go to: http://johnandmarylivingitupinecuador.wordpress.com/ where they give their perspective on life in Ecuador through pictures and stories.

    • Hi John & Mary, we really had a fun evening, thank you for sharing it with us. I have not planted the seedlings yet but it is on my list for this morning. And of course any seedlings you are willing to share are appreciated. Now to get the raised beds going for my herb, flower and tea garden….always work to be done, don’t you know. Nancy
