After the storm, this little one started to drink the rain gathered in the ribs of the fallen saguaro.

We have two old mesquite trees on our property. They are beyond the wall of the backyard so we don't spend much time out there. M has always said that between the two big trees would be the perfect place to eat dinner. He was right. We moved a table back there and it just may stay.
The shade back there gives us a nice cool spot even as the temperature continues to climb.
We are lucky to have a lot of bougainvillea so I used it to give the table a bit of a pop.
The vintage silverplate is "Park Lane" by Oneida.
I like the look and feel of recycled glass.
Almost everything on this table is made in Mexico, a nod to Cinco de Mayo.
Tricia asked about the plates. They are made in Mexico by Anfora. They were sold at Pottery Barn a couple of years ago as blue and white Puebla. Because they are handpainted, the design and color varies a bit from plate to plate. It is now directly available from Anfora.
