perfect event for the solstice

Some dedicated plotholders worked hard to hold a garden grand opening yesterday, on the Solstice.  It came together perfectly!  It's such a neat idea, and one that I would never have had the energy to pursue --but Forrest had a vision and with help from a group of dedicated volunteers (Anne and Buffy come to mind), made it a reality.  Forrest was able to get a few local shops to provide food and drinks (thanks the Main Squeeze, Olivia's Food Emporium, and McAlister's Deli), the Oxford Park Commission put up multiple tents, brought out tables and chairs (and then put them all away for us), and the Porch Rockers (including Forrest's mom and uncle) provided live music (they're really good).  A number of gardeners were even willing to donate fresh harvest (squash, beets, cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes, and basil).  From 6 until 8, people toured the garden, noshed on tasty food, enjoyed the tunes, and generally sat around and chatted.  So cool!  Here are a few pictures I was able to make myself take:

Best Solstice evening ever!
