An Anniversary and Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

Rick and I celebrated our 32nd anniversary yesterday and my sweet husband brought home this lovely bouquet of roses. Then we went to one of our favorite places for dinner. It is a bit of a drive, but that's one reason we like it so much. We go along the river and through some wooded areas that are so pretty this time of year. We had such a good time, eating and reminiscing about all our years together.

As you can see, the gardens are really filling up. Every day something new is blooming and I just can't get enough of looking at these beauties. The rock garden is doing especially well right now and there are so many textures and colors. It has taken us quite awhile to get it that way!

 I got a real surprise when I went out with my tea this morning. We knew there were baby bluebirds in the box at the back of our property, but we had no idea there was a nest in this house right off the deck! They have never nested so close. Bluebirds can become quite relaxed around people, so I hope they know what they're doing. I will be working on my vegetable garden right by them almost every day.  Can you tell, I'm really excited about these guys!

Happy anniversary!

And what a joy to have a bluebird to help you celebrate. I think they're the sweetest things ever!

Happy Anniversary!!! The pink roses are lovely and it sounds like you had a wonderful dinner, too. Your garden is already gorgeous. I love all the columbine. I hope the bluebirds don't mind the activity near their nest. They are such beautiful birds, aren't they?
