a mystery is solved

mystery bar

One of our favorite things to do in the summertime is to dine with friends out under the cherry trees. Guests never fail to question the metal bar that extends between the two trees. We never had a good explanation, but Harper figured it out on sight. See her reaching up?

With a little help from her mom, Noami, she put the mystery bar to good use.

Meet Harper Grayson McClure, aka our little bumblebee (when you are almost three, costumes are not reserved for Halloween). R took her on a tour of the veggie garden (his domain), where she zeroed in on a ripe yellow sweet pepper, which she munched on as if it were a sno-cone.

Of course she was interested in her tribe: the bees that were busy working over the lavender walk.

And then we all settled down to enjoy our dinner “en pleine aire”. Isn’t summer grand?

  1. Linda~More than one kitchen to clean? No way! (that’s what I always think when I see those elaborate outdoor setups)

    Peter~Trouble is, I don’t think the pollinators can read…nor can our little bee (yet).

    Tammy~Glad you’re enjoying outdoor pleasures as well.

    Alison~Do you dine in your folly? Seems like a great setting.

    Heather~Even when she frowns, which isn’t often.

    Loree~I couldn’t get over the pepper-munching thing. And they say it’s near impossible to get kids to eat their veggies.

  2. Wow, Harper is the strongest, prettiest bumblebee I’ve ever seen.
    Glad to see you are making the most of the weather – it’s always great to dine outdoors.

  3. Thanks for another lovely dinner and for posting pics! Harper had a blast, as did her parents. Hope all is well out on the farm :)
