New Friends

.


These are so lovely....don't you think?



Come closer...



Closer...


Can you smell that? I got these lovely lilacs from a new friend. We are having a party tomorrow for my Mother-in-laws 80th birthday. She has many friends that I have never met and I'm looking forward to meeting them all. One such friend lives right here in the neighborhood. I have heard them mentioned many many times, but for some reason, I have never met them.

When she called and offered these lilacs to me, I jumped at the chance. My MIL and I went over for a visit. I just loved them! They are Swiss and though they have both lived here for many many years, they still have strong accents. I got to tour their wonderful gardens and hear great stories. I am excited to go back for more!!

If you are wondering....yes, I am still cleaning! It's been a TRUE "spring cleaning" and I am loving the results. Wow. It feels like my whole house is "lifted", know what I mean? The big party is tomorrow and I can hardly wait!! I have a couple of HUGE surprises. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Take a moment to stop and smell the "roses" today. Or the Lilacs. Or ....any flower will do!!

  1. Your lilacs are lovely. The lady across the street has beautiful ones too but mine are too much in the shade and are trying so hard to bloom, I keep encouraging them.
