McCall 4444 - the last word

Or rather, a last photo or two. I wore the dress to work today - and was able to be mostly decent thanks to the loan of a shrug from the housemate (she of the "thick"comment).I think she's trying to atone.

Whatever; it's the perfect shade of aqua and kept me mostly covered at work, in both an appropriate and a defense-from-air conditioning sense.

The photos were taken in the back yard when I got home. It's been raining, it's been hot, it's been humid. Things are growing. A lot.

Dinner was a big salad of mixed greens from the yard, some fresh asparagus and chicken from the farmer's market with fresh herbs from the back yard.

Up until this year I mostly grew ornamental stuff; I didn't realize what I was missing. I'm unbearably smug when I'm eating food I've raised myself.

That outfit is so cute!!! All I can say is if that is what your friend calls "thick", then sign me up. You are positively slim.

The dress looks fantastic on! And you should be proud of the garden...I have to admit that I'm a little jealous!

I'm loving the dress. I shrug myself down too from feeling naked or feeling too big with my arms uncovered.

A food garden, can I come shopping in it?

That dress is great. I love the brown and teals. And I love gardens too. We can only grow chard, lettuce, and rhubarb.

What a nice dress - I love the colors! My garden is going wild too, but a pretty wild, like yours.
