Lunch Outdoors With Purple

It's a lovely day, so I set a table for my husband and myself on our deck off the study.  It is a great spot to eat lunch.  The fountain has a very soothing sound.


Fuschia's hang from the trellis, along with huge palms in urns.

This is such a happy color.


Purple chargers, along with white and purple floral plates set the mood for this luncheon.
Glass purple compotes complete the look along with the hobnail goblets.
I cut some lavender from our garden for the centerpiece.  I also added some with the napkin.

Today I mowed our small lawn and did some weeding. I then cleaned everything off with the blower.

We finally received our new beds with the adjustable base.  I will be writing a post on the  new beds soon.
We are getting used to them, with all of their bells and whistles.  It is a pleasure to watch tv in bed now or read. No more propping up pillows.

I also have a tutorial for a new recipe plugin for Blogger that I will be sharing soon.  Happy weekend and don't forget to link up to Sunday's Dishing It & Digging It party.

  10. Good morning Linda!!!!What a gorgeous color. Anything in the blue family from aqua (my favorite) through colbalt blue to lavender just hits me right. And your patio area, you'd think it was in the South of France or maybe England! HAVE FUN!!!!!

  12. I just love the colour purple and when you combine it with a simple white and green accents, nothing beats it for simplicity, elegance and freshness. Such a lovely table you've created, Linda. I'm looking enviously at your palm and wondering if I'll ever see green on the trees, lol.
    Fun chatting with you yesterday. Have a great weekend, Wonder Woman. xoox

Rich and I bought an adjustable bed back in 2009, and I love it. I'm sitting in it right now, eating my breakfast, watching TV and writing to you! Happy weekend to you!

  15. Wow! Purple is one of my favorite colors and I have a hand blown candy dish on my dining room table with two other pieces right now. I love Lilacs and purple always reminds me of them and Iris's. Beautiful centerpiece!

  22. Your purples are just stunning, and that lacy tablecloth makes it so romantic! We have been rainy, cold and windy here all week, so this looks especially nice. I can just imagine it with the sound of the water in the background!
