Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, I celebrated my birthday this past Sunday! Yes, it's already been a year since I last wrote a birthday post. The years are passing by faster as I get older, that's for certain.

I had a quiet family celebration, it was a beautiful day.

Of course there was an extravagant birthday cake
thanks to my youngest DD


and there was plenty of the nicest gift you can give: flowers!

A wedding bouquet of flowers

a vase of flowers

flowers outside a box

flowers inside a box

funeral casket flowers
(don't worry, it's not from a real funeral, my DD is in training)

and a garden plucked fragrant rose!

Along with my floral mystery BOM Forget Me Not,
it feels like it's really been a year for flowers in my household!
