An early spring means an early bloom.  I set the date for the annual wisteria soiree for the last Saturday in March as that was the average date where the peak of the bloom occurred during the previous 7 years.  This would allow everyone to put the date on their calendars and plan ahead.  Well, the best laid plans and all that… we have an early bloom this year and the wisteria may be a memory when the soiree date arrives.  But we don’t need the wisteria bloom to have a successful soiree.  Although, it is nice to sit under the arbor with our wine and shrimp as the blossoms fall onto our plates but we are often so involved in conversation that we don’t even notice.

This year we have a treat. Glenda’s brother, Ed, will be coming with his wife and he will be cooking a fantastic shrimp dish that he served when we escaped to his home in Shelby, NC to avoid Hurricane Matthew.  It is a real treat and beats another Frogmore Stew.

I am adding many of the images I captured in the garden this afternoon to demonstrate how early Spring is this year.

There are more but I think this is enough.

I really want to urge everyone to attend the soiree and to call me at 843-524-9649 or email me at seaislandman@islc.net and RSVP so I know I have enough for everyone to eat.

Remember that you have to bring your drink (unless it is water or a soft drink as I will have them here along with ice, paper plates and utensils.  Please bring a side to add to the eats.  You will need insect spray and a chair.  If it is stormy, come anyway as we have a large shed to keep dry under.  If you need directions, please call or email me for directions.  I am easy to find.

WE HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME AND THE MORE THE MERRIER.
