Long weekend with little accomplished.

This weekend was a good one. We were pretty busy, but did nothing that needed to be done at the house. Go figure. Saturday, when it was actually kinda nice out, instead of planting my flowers and putting down the weed blocking material and mulch, we went to Hidden Hill nursery. It is a beautiful spot in Utica, Indiana owned by Courier Journal columnist, Bob Hill. I don't know if he still does the column or not. I don't think so. Anyway, it's just an indescribably beautiful place and you can get some really spectacular pictures up there because it is a truly magnificent spot!
This is just one of the hundreds of Iris' planted on the grounds up there. So pretty. Look at the droplets of water! Here is a picture of one of the ENORMOUS hostas. The water droplets on this leaf look like diamonds shining in the sun!
And check out this beautiful old door that opens up to a small stretch of heaven on earth.

We also went with my sister-in-law, Glenda, and shot a Sunday wedding. It was my first time shooting a wedding and man is it way more stressful that I ever thought it could be. To top off the fact that it was stressful, we had "the best friend" who did the brides hair and makeup, there with her camera and we (the hired photographer) had to wait our turn each time to take a picture because "the one" was in the way. How very frustrating! If it had been me that was actually hired to take the pictures little Ms. Thing would have gotten an earful! Glenda is way nicer than I am! Anyway, it was a beautiful little church in Kentucky and we got some really cool shots. I can't wait to see the ones Glenda took. Here are a few that Michael and I took and at the very end, a macro that Michael shot of the bible that is literally padlocked shut on one of the podiums at the church.

I have a picture like this one of mine and Michael's rings and it's one of my favorites.

And last, but far from the least, (we shot over 200 pics) here is a macro I shot of the cake. I think it looks delicious!
