Harriet's Garden

Yesterday, our wonderful friend, Harriet G. Mulder, had us over for brunch in her delightful, cool, shaded garden.
Her perennial border is becoming wonderfully mature and making an impressive display from the street this year. Maybe it's the humid heat. I love the tall, full cosmos flowers that self-seed among the shrubs and lilies. Their misty foliage and hovering white, pink and red blossoms add a dash of fantasy to the border.
When we entered the little, secluded, cool garden we were greeted with prosecco and an appetizer of cold asparagus served with a sour cream and onion dip.
That was followed by a light, delicious lunch of garlic green beans, couscous, cole slaw and one-day pickles and a viewing in her studio of her summer watercolours. What a wonderful afternoon visit. Thank you, Harriet!
