I've been keeping my eye out for the first bloom of Trilliums in our woods and yesterday spied the first one opening up. So, my dear husband trekked up behind our creek and snapped a few photos for me. Isn't this beautiful? Now I know it's Springtime.
The purple flowers are creeping myrtle and have spread all around our woods but it's pretty.
He snapped this of the Mt. Hood white daffodils that we planted in this pot in the autumn.
This is a different perspective of our creek and waterfalls that spill into the koi pond. At the top a Chinese soldier stands guard.
He thought this lone daffodil next to the trunk of our Pin Oak was cute.
Then my dear husband picked me this bouquet of wild violets! I put them in my vintage Devon Violet perfume bottle made of hand-thrown red clay.
This vase arrived today - let's call it my anniversary gift - that I got on eBay and Dayle did not know about. :-D I was drawn to it by the little love birds. My sister that passed away summer before last was named Roberta, but I always called her "Bird". So this is in her honor. I can't wait to fill it with Lilacs, Roses and Dahlias.
Sweet little love birds.
Here is my intrepid husband nailing up the trellises that were dislodged when they put on the new metal roof.. they are straight now. Good boy.
CJ wins the color of the chair contest! She thought yellow, it's more of a gold but close enough to yellow. I've always gone with the safe chair color of brown but they had it in this glorious gold that reminds me of a palomino or buckskin horse. I was visiting my aunt and uncle that were managers of Roman Nose State Park in Oklahoma when I was 15 years old and my uncle asked me if I wanted to ride his horse around the park. YES!! So, he saddled it up with his black parade saddle with all kinds of silver on it and I spent a glorious day riding all around the huge park. I even ended up on the top of a mesa! I remember being scared of riding down the steep sides but the horse and I made it down safely.
Last but not least - we celebrated our 51st anniversary yesterday. We did not do anything in the least exciting and we made egg salad sandwiches for dinner. We met when I was a 14 year old high school freshman and he was a 15 year old junior. Here we are when we got married in Louisiana in 1970. I couldn't have picked a better partner to spend my life with.
This will be a different kind of Easter for us. Our son and his family have chosen to spend the day with her sister. We usually have a nice dinner and give the kids some Easter goodies. Maybe next year. Do you have any big plans? Do share!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
