We have a lovely neighbor who is from Lexington-area horse-country, and holds an annual party on Derby Day.
She’s a talented lady who also grows a front- and back-garden of flowers, with blooms nearly every day of the year.
This year, with a late spring, the roses and irises are all still gorgeous, although they’re usually less showy by now.
She also gives prizes for lady’s hats (no entry from me this year, although maybe next year? if I have help and prodding and a glue-gun loan from N and B).
And, yes, the juleps are delightful!
