Went to a garden party....

Grace invited people to enjoy a summer evening in her backyard.  Great food, great company, and a wonderful surprise - live music!  As soon as the musicians started to play, the skies opened up and the rain poured down, and everyone huddled together under backyard umbrellas and awnings to listen. 

The musicians were all fellow-Bluffers, with Grace on violin.The trio of violin, keyboard and bass played a few songs, including a beautiful rendition of 'Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most.   'Summertime', was a duo of violin and harmonica that was perfectly executed - accompanied by thunderclaps in all the right places.  Raindrops pelting on the shelter added an extra layer of percussion.   It was as if the storm was sitting in to jam.

When the rain stopped, night fell, and we went for an evening splash in the pool.  Altogether lovely.
