White Flowers







My husband surprised me yesterday with a bouquet of flowers. An early birthday gift, as it were. 

"We won't be here for your birthday, so I thought I'd give you some today."

Sweet man. Roses, gerbera daisies and alstroemeria with lots of green salal. So very fresh and pretty. I broke the bouquet apart. Now there's a vase on the coffee table, two on the mantel, and one in the bedroom. I do love flowers, don't you?

  18. Joyeux Anniversaire, ton mari est un amour, les fleurs sont magnifiques ! Ma grand-mère les aimait beaucoup aussi, et c'est elle qui m'a éveillée à leur beauté. Quand j'étais petite je disais que je deviendrais fleuriste avec elle. A chaque fois que je suis au jardin je pense à elle.
    (Et d'ailleurs ta photo d'en-tête avec les dahlias m'a tapé dans l'oeil aussi :)

  25. So thoughtful! And that must have been a big bundle of flowers -- your divisions are lush enough! My guy also had white flowers for me, albeit a much more modest bunch -- white ragged-edged tulips. So pretty and so fresh, just as you describe, the green and white.

  31. What a sweet man for sure.
    I do love flowers in the house.
    Lovely white ones, just gorgeous.
    A friend once visited and asked why
    I had flowers all over the house. I said because they make me happy.
    Enjoy! And Happy Birthday to you!

  32. HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear Lorrie!!!
    You have a very thoughtful husband - I'm sure that was one of the qualities you looked for in your life partner!

    Beautiful white flowers and I agree with Vita's words.
    I visited the magnificent garden she created at Sissinghurst in Kent. I didn't want to leave her white garden - it was so beautiful. She was very selective about what she planted.

    Enjoy your birthday and many more to come!
    hugs

  33. Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers. Happy Birthday!!
    Thanks for stopping by. Yes they are glad about the pecan trees, but not the walnut, so was glad they found someone else that did.
    Hope you are having a great week.
