Flowers for my Birthday!

the dining room flowers
I had a birthday this week.  My two daughters sent me flowers.  No, I won't admit here how old I am, but suffice it to say that they ordered four bouquets to equal the number of years!  I have the flowers in vases in the dining room, living room, and kitchen!

the ones in the living room here and below

On the kitchen counter:  the small vase was a gift from
Thelma, my beloved next door neighbor.  The little pot
of miniature roses, from oldest daughter, this a Mother's Day gift.

Here's a portrait of our three children, taken in 1999, before both
daughters had married.  I love this picture because
you can see both girls' engagement rings when you look closely!


  1. I LOVE the photo of the children and of course I love love the __ roses!!! How nice to have a mix of colors. You should have held them all in you hands and arms in front of Photo Booth for a heck of a remembrance. Do that now!!!

  2. Your blog is the perfect venue for showing us your children's thoughtfulness ( I love the picture of the three ) plus share the wonderful roses with us. I'm amazed that they could order such beautiful roses from afar.

  3. Mom, So glad you took a photo of the roses! Love you, k

  4. A wonderful blog. I loved all the roses, but my favorite was the lilies. So delicate. The picture of your children is so perfect.
