Ginkgo Garden Club Birthday Celebration

Our local garden club celebrated its 41st birthday with an outing. We went on a luncheon at The Bar (restaurant and grill) in Cape Girardeau, MO. The Bar was in the 2014 film Gone Girl, staring Ben Affleck. The Bar sits across the street from Cape County Courthouse which was also in the film.

The hostess for the month decorated the tables with potted plants and lanterns. There was a television mounted on the wall with a movie playing of beautiful landscapes. 

Instead of a birthday cake, we had decorated cupcakes in a flower motif. 

On the way home from the luncheon, we noticed the beautiful sky over the Mississippi River.

When we crossed the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge back into Illinois, 

I noticed the beautiful weeds in Illinois.

Later we headed back to Kentucky. 

Thanks for stopping in - JoAnn.
