The whole wedding was great. The food, music, cupcakes, etc. The ceremony took place on the hill overlooking Seneca Lake. Check out the view!
After the wedding we went to stay with my parents. They have been doing a lot of work on their garden the last few years and this was the first time I had gotten to see it in the summer (Somehow you don't get the whole picture in December when the garden in question is located in western New York).
The fish pond had to be redone due to a leak. Not surprising since it was installed when I was in Middle School. I think it may have been the project that started the garden rehab.
My mom LOVES hostas. They are featured heavily in the backyard. It's shady there and since they had some tree work done that opened up the canopy, they have been growing like crazy. It was mentioned that they were blooming really well this year.
Here's another view of the backyard. Lots of hostas, ferns and shade lovers.
They also had a lot of work done in the front yard. The landscape that was put in when the house was built was getting really overgrown and the timber retaining wall was rotting away. It was time for a change. I have been able to see all the new hardscape work when I've been up in the winter, but it was great seeing all of the plants!
I'll tell a little bit about the interesting nurseries we visited on our trip latter on. It's good to be back in Texas, even if we near record breaking temperatures yesterday.
