Yesterday was a special day for me and my Arranger. Much of my family gathered to help us celebrate our 57th wedding anniversary. Where have the years gone? I don’t know, but they have been good ones.

Gifts for my Arranger included a  dozen yellow roses (her favorites) and a delightful bouquet of lilies. It seems only appropriate that I use those gifts for our Vase this Monday.

I am also rather amazed to be able to include a small vase with the same calla lilies. They were in our vase three weeks ago and are still looking great. THREE weeks!


Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and other are including in their vases this day.

  2. Happy Anniversary. Delightful that you had your family to help you celebrate a long and lasting love affair. A blessing that takes hard work, patience, and not always having to be right. Many more….
