Sunday nite BBQ

We were at my best friend's house this evening for BBQ dinner in her lovely garden.

Her pink amaryllis in full bloom. Isn't it lovely?
Another one is about to blossom.
Even her lotus plant is flowering! She really has green fingers! I'm almost green with envy.
Look! A gecko hiding behind the striking heliconia.
The bird nest fern is just huge!
Her mother-in-law is an expert in growing hydrangea!
A nice touch! Duckie and dragon pot.
Here I am playing with Benson the cute beagle.
Pu-er Chinese tea. It's good for slimming, she says.
As usual, the kids catch up with their gaming while the adults catch up on life.
Guess what I returned home to? This mess created by Cookie and Rusty! They destroyed my favourite plant! They're taking revenge because we didn't bring them to the party.

Oh my gosh, you're not kidding about the hydrangea. The one in the pic is just beautiful.

Yes, having been a dog owner, I remember well coming home to the wrath of a doggie feeling neglected. :(

I'd have to say that's the first time I've seen a laptop station set up for a BBQ ... LOL!

Hey Holly and JY - in all seriousness, Rusty must have started it all. He must have found a toad or something hiding inside the pot and they went on a digging frenzy!

Nick - Oh, the lap top is set up with a projector so that we have an instant open-air movie screening. With the wireless connection, they start playing online games as well. It's to keep the kids occupied. :-)

I love all the flowers, but the lotus is my favourite -gorgeous!

It was great seeing the photos of you and "Benson" too. You're pretty! :-)

Thanks Michelle! I'm blushing :-P

Oh, the lotus is really beautiful. In our Buddhist belief, it's considered a holy flower because it is so untainted and pure despite being grown in muddy water.
