Garden Tuesday: Birthday

I got older, again, last Thursday.  Or maybe not; to quote my second daughter, "A girl only turns 21 so many times, you know."

Some of the kids came home for a dual celebration: Mark's 14th birthday and mine - but mostly Mark's.  Celebrations are for the kids, after all.  But they got me flowers!



Notice this guy here: a squirrel holding up a giant nut.  Dan chose that one; it's just typical of Dan's humor.

So, it's kind of like an indoor garden here in my little corner of the world.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

I was totally in my own world celebrating birthdays last week with little to no internet access, so didn't even with you a happy birthday. Hope your day was fabulous! Are you inspired to sew yet?

Such beautiful flowers! I just bought myself some kickin' little red booties for my anniversary. I especially like the squirrel vase; what a fun, personal touch.

Well look at you getting to celebrate your birthday twice. Thank goodness it doesn't add on another year, lol...A very Happy Birthday to that boy of yours. He is a treasure:) Dan did good too with that "nutty" planter.

Thanks for sharing your corner of the world with us Marjie. My corner is getting mighty chilly....
