Back in June we there a dinner party for some Rochester friends who hadn't seen the house yet. We ate cake in honor of Matt's birthday.
But to be honest, it was really so that I could live out a mental vision I had when we walked the backyard of this house and saw the horizontal tree.
Yes, the horizontal tree you all want me to remove.
Well, everyone but Matt and my dad, the two men who understand my love of this tree.
Anyway, I had a very clear vision of this very dinner party.
And so, in typical Deedle fashion, it had to be executed.
There were wildflowers, and chicken, and mustadry-potatoes, and drinks with herbs from the garden, and babies toddling around in bare feet.
Mark even got in the tree I love so dearly. Sunny day, great people. It was perfect. Just as the vision - as some things turn out to be.
