Flowers and an Anniversary






Tonight I thought I'd post something short...it's been a long week and tomorrow is our anniversary. I'm planning on us spending a quiet weekend with not one thing on my 'schedule.' My last posts were too far apart...so something pretty and brief sounded good for me tonight. Oh, by the way.....it's the 45th anniversary for me and that old Navy man. Who knew??? I'm trying to hold out for 50...that's been my plan all along....and I hope we can make it. Opposites attract, that's for sure and with some effort from both of us...we've made it this far. Yea!!!!

So...to celebrate here's some pretty flowers! I love hydrangeas....blue, pink, lavender, white...doesn't matter to me, I love them all. So, the old Navy man and I planted some three years ago. Neither of us have green thumbs....so, it had to be the plants, the soil, or both because we have four quite large, beautiful hydrangeas growing here. All we really did was cheer them along!

I hope you enjoy the photos. Now that I have this new iMac with it's big screen, I can actually SEE the photos and I am really amazed that I, myself, have taken these photos...too cool!!! So, you have a wonderful weekend and we will too! I'll see you Monday or so. Stay cool, pat

Hydrangeas remind me of the deep south like no other flower. They send me back to stifling hot Summer day, visiting distant relative in small towns reminiscent of Mayberry, small one-story houses with massive hydrangeas along the sides of the house, and an endless buffet of food being pushed on us, with pleas of "Are you sure you've had enough? Why don't you make up a plate to take with you?"

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. :-)

ps, I LOVE hydrangeas but alas live in a climate zone much to cold.
