menu plan monday ~ june 27, 2016

We had a nice weekend, in spite of the heat. On Saturday, DH and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary. Where did the time go? Seems like last week our family looked like this…

Older Son was eight years old in that picture. Now his girls are eight years old. Just. like. that. Savor the moments. They fly by.

This past spring…

We toured the garden a couple of times, noting the daylily FFOs (first flower out). I enjoyed the hostas, too. This one is ‘Journey’s End.’ It is on its way to being a very large specimen.

The large one in this picture is called ‘Komodo Dragon.’ It is just getting started. It will gain in size by quite a bit before it is done. This is its third or fourth summer in our garden. It can take five to ten years for a large hosta to reach its mature size.

Saturday evening we had a little rain (much needed) and the sunset through the window pane was beautiful. My dear husband drove 25 miles away to get sushi for our anniversary dinner. Thank you, DH!


Sunday morning, DH picked the flowers and I made this bouquet for church. White hydrangeas, purple hosta flowers, and ‘Chorus Line’ daylilies. I told DH we could call them “Choir Line” daylilies for the day.

Sunday afternoon, DH picked raspberries.

We got a lot! And he picked more that evening.

    Your day-lilies are beautiful and the bouquet is gorgeous. The raspberries look delicious and they are one of my favorite fruits.

    Happy Anniversary! Hope you and your husband enjoy 39 more wonderful years. Time does fly. My grand daughter turned 18 last week and I was thinking the same thing. Seems like we just brought her home and now’s she on her journey of being a adult.

    Happy 4th of July and it sounds like your going to have a fantastic day.
