Quilting, Farming, Variety

Friday, July 24, 2015

Two weeks ago, our older grandson got married.  This was the place they chose for the wedding,
on top of a bluff!  
The trail going down to the spot they had picked, was so steep that a man stretched a big heavy rope from tree to tree for us to cling to on the way down.
Guests were seated on square bales of hay.
Informal ~ but very nice.
An extension of the bluff.  I would have felt much more secure if I could have worn my lace-up shoes and jeans.  The heights really bothered the farmer; he kept holding on to me.  I guess he was afraid I'd fall on the rocks.  Or, was he thinking, "If I fall off, I'm taking her with me!"

  9. Kids don't seem to worry if Grandma and Grandpa can make it to their wedding location,nowadays. Back in the day, I'm sure we would have had those concerns. However, this was a gorgeous spot and I glad you and The Farmer could make the climb. :-)

  10. Before we moved here, we lived in town on the back of the city park. It was a cool place to live, they'd shoot off fireworks in that park on July 4 and we'd just have a barbeque in our back yard and watch the display from our back porch. But anyway, there was a gazebo just down the sidewalk from our back gate, and there were a few times when weddings were held there. One time, even, they walked up the sidewalk and had their pictures taken with my hollyhocks behind them. I think when young couples don't get fixated on the fancy stuff, and prefer the simple, natural things in life, they have a better start for a good marriage.

  15. Wonderful place for a wedding. Beautiful. All the wedding photos will be amazing with the scenery. Congratulations to the newly weds.
    I agree jeans and shoes would be a peach for trekking around that beautiful place.
    Maybe the Farmer was holding on to you remembering your newly wedding days. ;)

  19. What a beautiful and unique setting for a wedding… perfect!!! I truly hope that "the farmer" was experiencing the former and not planning on the latter ;-).

  20. I bet you're putting up hay these days.. Hope you're having pretty weather for it.. Thanks for visiting mine and to answer your question, yes I wish I could have learned mama's cure but she could only tell three men and the men could tell three women .. Daddy was getting to old to do it and my brothers wanted no part of it. One of them could have told me.. There's one man that lives local that has said he will be happy to tell me just as soon as I get back able to do it.. You take care. Hugs and Blessings, xo
